VERSAILLES, Ky. — A woman and her two teen-age children were sentenced to 12 months each in jail for holding her husband captive in the basement of their home for two months.

Shirley Kimberl, 39, her 18-year-old son James Jr. and daughter Kim, 19, were found guilty June 17 of second-degree unlawful imprisonment.

Mrs. Kimberl was acquitted of attempted murder. The defendants said they kept James Kimberl, 47, captive to protect themselves from being beaten and abused.
