A Florala man was arrested Monday for allegedly kidnapping and holding his wife and three children at gunpoint.

Chief Sonny Bedsole said law enforcement was dispatched to the home of Robert Gene Yingst after his wife alleged that on Thursday, Yingst held the family against their will for more than 14 hours, threatened to kill her and then himself.

Bedsole said he was able to get a warrant, which was served with the assistance of the Covington County Sheriff’s Office, the Lockhart Police Department and the Andalusia Police Department.

Bedsole said Yingst was taken into custody and charged with one count of second-degree kidnapping and harassment. An additional three counts of second-degree kidnapping and one count of second-degree sexual abuse are also pending against Yingst.

Bedsole said the sexual abuse charge is unrelated to this specific incident, and that Yingst is currently on probation for second-degree murder conviction in Oklahoma.

Bedsole told WKNI TV 25 today that Yingst probation in Oklahoma was from him shaking a 4 month old child to death. (Shaking Baby Syndrome) WKNI TV 25 also found that Mr. Yingst was in Covington County Jail in 2008 on Domestic Violance and was placed on Probation and was later released by the Alabama Probation and Parole. Bedsole also stated to WKNI TV 25 that Yingst was being held without bound requested by the Alabama Probation and Parole.
