A Vicksburg man has been indicted for kidnapping by a Warren County grand jury. He is accused of taking a woman from work and holding her in a house.

According to Warren County Sheriff’s Office reports, Kenneth Dwayne Bingham, 35, 141 Cumberland Road, visited the woman’s work on Nov. 22 and took her from the business while she was taking a break. There was no evidence, according to the report that he went on the business’ property.

After taking her from work, Bingham took her to his home on Cumberland Drive and held her there. Deputies were later called to the home by a third party and arrived to find Bingham and the woman had been in a fight that resulted in non-life threatening injuries to the woman.
