>> Jayme Closs to be given $25K reward after she saved herself from accused kidnapper
In a criminal complaint filed last month, authorities said Patterson admitted to killing James and Denise Closs and to abducting Jayme. Patterson told investigators he targeted Jayme after seeing her get on a school bus as he was driving home from a short-lived job at a cheese factory. He said he did not know the girl or her family before the attack, according to officials.
Jayme told investigators Patterson made her hide under his bed in his bedroom and stacked totes and laundry bins around the bed with weights inside to keep her from moving the items without his knowledge. She said she was forced to stay under the bed for as many as 12 hours at a time without food, water or bathroom breaks.
A judge determined Patterson was a flight risk and a danger to the public last month and set his bail at $5 million.
