Rochester Man Found Guilty of Charges He Kidnapped Pregnant Woman

A Rochester man has been found guilty of charges he kidnapped a pregnant woman last year. 

Authorities alleged Joshua Mencel -- and co-defendants Jilliane Mencel and William Geer -- held Geer's fiancee captive at a home on Santee Street. They were accused of keeping her for more than a week in a locked room with sealed windows. 

Prosecutors say Geer was the father of the unborn child, and the couple's toddler. 

Mencel will be sentenced next month. Jilliane Mencel is set to go on trial May 1.
