More charges could come Monday against a Northern New York couple accused of kidnapping and sexually abusing two young Amish sisters last week.

The district attorney in Saint Lawrence County says she expects more charges against Stephen Howells and Nicole Vaisey.

Law officers are still collecting computer hard drives and other evidence from the suspects' home.

They were arrested on Friday.

DA Mary Rain says the girls were sexually assaulted before they were freed last Thursday.
