CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A former U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs police officer charged with the kidnapping of his wife following an incident at their home on the Wind River Indian Reservation has been released from jail pending trial.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1r1dDAY ) that William Curran was released Tuesday. His attorney, Michael Bennett, says Curran, who had been an officer on the reservation since 2014, was fired Monday.

A criminal complaint says Curran’s wife reported her husband had forced her into their basement, handcuffed her wrists and ankles and threatened to kill her. It says the victim had been able to dial 911 while she was restrained.

Bennett says Curran, who has been evicted from his government housing, will live on a fellow officer’s property in Fremont County.
