The U.S. Attorney General's Office says three people are in custody accused of holding a woman and her child captive for more than two years.
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) — An East Tennessee soldier who was critically wounded in Afghanistan just as his deployment was ending is now in desperate need of a kidney transplant.
Army Pfc. Marshall Lane told the Johnson City Press (http://bit.ly/13Kdpzx) that he is grateful to have survived a bullet wound last year, but the injuries and blood loss caused his kidneys to fail.
Lane says Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where he is being treated, is involved in an effort to find a kidney donor.
He said the medical center will test potential donors to see if they are a match for him — or for anyone else who is waiting for a transplant.
He said he hopes a donated kidney would allow him to stay in the military.
