Police: Husband Holds Wife Captive For Nearly Two Years

A California corrections worker is under arrest for allegedly abusing his wife while holding her captive in their home for nearly two years.

The ordeal ended Thursday when police arrived at the home in Lodi in response to a 911 call. The 44-year-old woman ran toward one of the police cars and tried to jump through an open passenger window.

She told authorities that her husband, Michael O'Riley, had sexually abused her, threatened her and denied her food and money for nearly 22 months.

O'Riley, a counselor at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, false imprisonment, sex crimes and terrorist threats, among other charges. Police say they also seized nine firearms from him.
