FARGO - A Fargo woman is recovering after being scalded with boiling water, stabbed, choked, punched and raped this weekend when her child's father abducted her and fled to the Twin Cities area.


The 25-year-old woman escaped Sunday and gave authorities detailed allegations against Shawntas Turnage, 23, and his wife, Aiesha, 25, who is accused of helping him during the two days, according to felony charges filed Tuesday in Anoka County (Minn.) District Court.
