FAYETTEVILLE – A former Collins Middle School teacher accused of kidnapping waives his preliminary hearing in Fayette County.
Joshua Taylor, 30, of Weirton is accused of kidnapping a 13 year-old Oak Hill girl.
Taylor is a former teacher at Collins where the girl is a student.
State troopers say Taylor kidnapped the girl for more than 22 hours in late January.
He was scheduled to appear in magistrate court Monday morning but waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will appear before a grand jury in May.
Taylor is being held in Southern Regional Jail.
