The perfectly clipped hedges at Montecito's Val Verde estate still bristle with authority, impossibly long lines of them, not a breach in sight. The 110-year-old camellias haven't stirred from their posts beside a reflecting pool, and the citrus trees are still cut into the pleasing cubes that garden designer Lockwood De Forest Jr. envisioned playing off the geometry of the breakthrough 1910 Modernist house. It's a miracle, really.

A Michigan man scheduled to stand trial next week in the kidnaping of a Val Verde real estate agent lost a key courtroom battle Monday when a judge ruled that a confession by him to police was admissible evidence. Federal Magistrate Edward Rafeedie also ruled that prosecutors could tell the jury that the alleged victim had identified the defendant from a photo lineup.

A man suspected of kidnaping and sexually assaulting a Val Verde real estate agent is likely to be transferred from Utah, where he was apprehended, to Los Angeles to face federal charges, authorities said Thursday. Timothy Daniel Shue, 38, will appear in federal court in Salt Lake City today where he will have the opportunity to challenge efforts to extradite him to California, said his court-appointed attorney, Reid Lambert.

The trial of a Michigan man suspected of kidnaping a Val Verde real estate agent was postponed Monday at his lawyer's request, but the tactic may backfire as a prosecutor announced she will use the time to conduct DNA tests. A one-month delay in the trial of Timothy Daniel Shue, 38, was sought in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles by his attorney, Deputy Federal Public Defender Ellen Barry, who said she needs more time to investigate the case.

A Val Verde real estate agent, who said she was kidnaped June 29 while showing a house to a Michigan man, testified Thursday that she had no chance to flee while she and the defendant shopped for camping gear. Paula Harrington, 27, said that most of the time she was with accused abductor Timothy Shue, her legs were tied with an elastic bandage.

A man accused of kidnaping a Val Verde real estate agent will not face charges--for now--from the Los Angeles County district attorney's office because a federal case against him already covers most of the allegations, authorities said Friday. Timothy Daniel Shue, 38, is accused of abducting Paula Harrington, 26, at gunpoint June 29 by posing as a prospective home buyer. She was found tied up in an Arizona motel room two days later.
