Two Americans still in Haitian jail on kidnapping charges

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (WKOW) -- A judge in Haiti says he isn't ready to release his decision on whether or not to release two Americans still jailed on kidnapping charges.

Judge Bernard Saint-Vil told The Associated Press he is working with prosecutors on the charges against Laura Silsby and Charisa Coulter.

Saint-Vil had said earlier he would probably order their release after Tuesday's hearing, but didn't give a reason for the delay.

The two missionaries were visited by U.S. Embassy personnel after being taken back to jail.

Saint-Vil previously freed eight other Americans detained with the pair for trying to take 33 children out of Haiti without proper papers.
