Grand jury to hear cases of Fargo men accused of trying to kidnap 14-year-old girl

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - The cases of two Fargo men accused of trying to kidnap a 14-year-old girl from her school Monday in Bowling Green were bound over to a grand jury this morning, the prosecutor said.

Under Kentucky law, Dragan Jovanovic, 42, and Elvis Tahirovic, 18, must be indicted within 60 days or they will be automatically released, said Christopher Cohron, commonwealth's attorney for the Eight Judicial Circuit in Warren County, Ky.

The two men were arrested on suspicion of attempted kidnapping after they allegedly tried to take the girl from her school and bring her back to North Dakota to marry Jovanovic's 14-year-old son. They appeared in court this morning.

Jovanovic and Tahirovic remain in the Warren County Regional Jail on $100,000 cash bail.
