A Roosevelt man charged by federal prosecutors earlier this month with breaking into the home of his estranged common-law wife and beating her is now facing a federal kidnapping charge.

The added charge against John Anthony Larett came in an indictment handed up Wednesday by a federal grand jury and stems from a Jan. 2 incident on the Uintah-Ouray Indian Reservation.

Larett, 27, was already facing federal charges for burglary of a dwelling and assault with serious bodily injury while within Indian Country in the same incident.

According to a complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office, Larett kicked down the door at the Fort Duchesne home where the woman, an enrolled member of the Ute Indian Tribe, was living and attacked her. He then forced her into his car.

A Bureau of Indian Affairs police officer responding to the domestic dispute saw Larett speed away from the home and tried to stop him.

Investigators said Larett wouldn't stop, sparking a chase. Uintah County sheriff's deputies deployed spikes just west of Vernal on U.S. 40, flattening the car's tires.

Deputies had to use a police dog to take Larett into custody.

The woman told investigators Larett forced her to perform a sex act during the chase, according to court documents.

Larett is charged in 8th District Court in Vernal with forcible sodomy, tampering with evidence, failing to stop for police, interfering with a legal arrest and driving on a conditional license with alcohol in his body.

Larett remains in the Uintah County Jail.
