Garza County Man Faces Kidnapping Charges

A Garza County man accused of kidnapping his own son pleaded not guilty Friday.

Police escorted Greg Soto Junior through the Garza County Court house Friday morning for his arraignment. Soto faces aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault charges. Police say that on June 16th Soto beat his ex-wife, Isela Gomez, and then kidnapped their four year-old son Sammy.

At Friday's arraignment Gomez said she is going on with her life. "I'm still gonna keep on living. I'm growing off my kids. We're not gonna let this knock us down. This has only made us stronger," said Isela Gomez.

Police caught Soto in Minnesota with his son 10 days after they disappeared. Sammy was returned unharmed to his mother.
