FBI agents arrested two people Sunday night and recovered unharmed an 8-day-old girl who was abducted last week by a woman who shot and stabbed the infant's mother to death. FBI agents and Jacksonville sheriff deputies arrested Wendy Leigh Zabel, 23, and Robert Henry Ryan, 26, as they arrived with the baby in a car at a Jacksonville apartment complex. The baby did not appear to be injured, the FBI said, but was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

A 9-month-old Tampa girl was kidnapped, raped and abandoned in a wooded area, and was hospitalized in serious condition. Randolph Standifer, 21, was charged with kidnapping, capital sexual battery and attempted first-degree murder and was being held without bail. He faces a possible life sentence if convicted. Standifer told detectives he took the baby from her crib Saturday morning, said Hillsborough County Sheriff's Col. David Gee. Standifer is a friend of the baby's family.
