LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - New details are revealed in court documents about the man accused of taking three Lubbock children and driving them across state lines. Court documents reveal Kenneth Wilcox may have done this before. Prosecutors filed notice Wednesday to offer evidence that Wilcox allegedly kidnapped before. He took three adult women, three different times to 'the river' near Idabel, Oklahoma which is the same area police say he took the three children. Prosecutors hope to reveal Wilcox's intent - instead of his claim of getting side-tracked on his way to Six Flags over Texas with the children.

"I'm innocent. I didn't kidnap no kids. I had permission to leave with them," said Kenneth Wilcox as he was being booked him into the Lubbock County Jail.

New court documents state "consent" is what Wilcox said he had in 2007 when he took a woman from Montana to Idabel, Oklahoma.

"We had to sleep in the woods and my sister and her friend kept begging him to come home and he kept on saying that he was going to fix his truck but he never did," said 9-year-old Angel Contreras who was taken to Oklahoma.

According to most recent court documents, prosecutors intend to show that Wilcox engaged in very similar bizarre behavior on other occasions with other people. The papers also said that each occasion involved Wilcox transporting a person to the same location in Oklahoma and scaring or terrorizing the person through psychological mind games.

Wilcox promised to take a Montana woman to Las Vegas to pick up a Cadillac Escalade he promised her as a gift. Instead they took a detour to Oklahoma. Documents allege Wilcox told the woman that only one of them would make it out alive and told her that his friend wanted to rape her. He later wrote the same woman a check for $1 million. Just as he promised the woman a trip to Las Vegas, he promised the children that he would take them to Six Flags. "We didn't go any of those places he told us," said 11-year-old Jasmine Bazan.

Court documents state that the person "Wilcox used to terrorize the Montana woman with the prospect of rape iss the same person Wilcox used to scare the children with stories relating to purchasing them for cannibalism." Wilcox also wrote another check by "the river", but this time it was made out to 11-year-old Bazan for $1 million.

Wilcox's competency hearing is set for May 7th.
