Michael Devlin Charged with Forcible Sodomy of Ben Ownby & Shawn Hornbeck

Michael Devlin, who has already been charged with the kidnappings of Ben Ownby and Shawn Hornbeck, has now been charged with the molestation and sodomy of the two boys. We knew eventually these charges were going to be brought forth and the unpleasant reality of what these two boys went through would come to light after authorities found Ben Ownby and Shawn Hornbeck in Devlin’s apartment

Devlin, a 41-year-old pizzeria manager who had previously been charged with two counts of kidnapping, was charged with 69 counts of forcible sodomy, all felonies and each punishable by up to life in prison.

St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCullough said 18 of the counts related to an abduction last month, and the remaining counts were related to an abduction several years ago, apparent references to the Jan. 8 disappearance of 13-year-old Ben Ownby and the 2002 kidnapping of Shawn Hornbeck, now 15.

For the four days he was held, Ben was molested four times a day, prosecutors said. (AP)
