Kidnap attempt charges against suspected killer

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The man charged with killing a 15-year-old Northern California girl has now been charged with trying to kidnap three women during a string of earlier carjackings.

Prosecutors earlier charged 21-year-old Antolin Garcia Torres with murder in the disappearance of Morgan Hill teenager Sierra LaMar. She went missing in March and her body was never found.

The girl's DNA was found in Torres' car.

He still hasn't entered a plea. Arraignment is set for Dec. 10.

The San Jose Mercury News reports Wednesday that three attempted kidnappings dating back to 2009 have now been filed against Torres.

The victims include an 18-year-old from Gilroy, a 46-year-old from San Martin and a 36-year-old from Morgan Hill.
