Cody McGee and Stepanie Wilson

ALBANY, Texas - The Haskell couple accused of kidnapping their children and leading police on a high speed chase are now in the Shackelford County Jail.

Cody McGee, 26, is charged with aggravated kidnapping. His bond is $50,000. Stephanie Wilson, 23, is charged with aggravated kidnapping and evading arrest. Her bond is $53,500.

They were transferred to the Shackelford County Jail which helps house inmates for Callahan County.


Haskell police say McGee assaulted a CPS worker at 11 a.m. Friday during the parents' visitation with their eight and 4-year-old boys. Police say McGee and Wilson then kidnapped the boys, prompting an Amber Alert.

The couple's Jeep Compass was located in Abilene around 3:15 p.m. That started a chase that ended in Baird about 30 minutes later.

Both children were returned to CPS custody.
