Indictment Handed Down In Missing U Of I Scholar Case 

(Urbana, IL)  —  The man charged with kidnapping a Chinese-born U of I scholar is being charged again. Brendt Christensen is facing the same federal charges for kidnapping, but this time the charges come from a grand jury indictment. Prosecutors say the indictment is an indication of how strong their case is. Investigators say Christensen lured Yingying Zhang into his car last month. Police believe Zhang is dead, but have not yet charged Christensen with her murder.
