A Shawnee family is accused of vigilante justice.

Kenneth Cowan, his wife Rebecca and their son Brian are charged with kidnapping and assault in Lincoln County.

Prosecutors accuse the Cowans and another woman, Sonya Bull, of torturing a Meeker man who they claim molested two young girls. The man says they tied him down and beat him.

Police say one of the girls told them the man did not molest her.
