Admission in Reso kidnap

TRENTON, NEW JERSEY (AP) - Irene Seale admitted yesterday that she and her husband kidnapped Exxon executive Sidney Reso and left him in a storage locker where he died.

Reso died days before the first ransom note was sent.

Mrs Seale agreed to testify against her husband, whom her lawyer accused of abusing and manipulating her. She faces a sentence of 25 years, which could be reduced if she provides substantial co-operation to investigators.
