OKLAHOMA CITY -- Court documents released on Thursday confirm all four suspects arrested in the severe beating of 18-year-old Stetson Johnson have been officially charged.

Richard Dellert, Zachary Provence, Amanda Hodges and Kimberly Kirchler have all four been charged with kidnapping, assault and battery and maiming.

Johnson says on April 17, he was leaving a friend's house in Southeast Oklahoma City when he was allegedly confronted by one of the men. He says he was then drugged and beaten.  The world "rapest" was tattooed on his forehead, and other words tattooed on chest.
