Kidnapping suspect left at the altar before courthouse wedding
Maybe having the groom behind bars during the wedding was a deal-breaker for this bride.
The Chicago Tribune reports that an unidentified bride-to-be was a no-show at her own wedding to kidnapping and robbery suspect Jeremy M. Jones, who is being held behind bars while awaiting his October trial.

Jones was scheduled to tie the knot Tuesday under the supervision of Judge John Kinsella, who had been overseeing Jones’ criminal trial and who had given court permission for the wedding to take place.
The bride and groom were due in court for the ceremony at 9 a.m., and Jones was on time to the nuptials. The bride, however, was still nowhere to be found by 10:10 a.m., at which time court was adjourned.
It was not known if the bride-to-be had been located. Her identity was not available, according to The Tribune.
Jones was arrested in September 2016 along with two other men for allegedly abducting a Wheaton College student, forcing him into their car at gunpoint and taking him to several ATMs where they demanded he withdraw and give them $1,500.
The victim was eventually released from their custody unharmed in Chicago.
Jones has been held at the DuPage County Jail awaiting trial in lieu of paying his $3.5 million bail.
Jones’ lawyer Glenn Jazwiec told the Chicago Tribune that he plans to see his client acquitted on all charges.
