Burell's bail now $700,000, Soliz being held on $250,000


Bail for two Taft women charged with kidnap, robbery and torture was increased significantly this week.

Jacquelyn Burrell, 43, and Sarah Soliz, 37, were arrested on June 1 in connection with the attack.

Burell had remained in custody in $25,000, while Soliz was released on a $25,000 bond.
This week, Burell's bail was raised to $700,000 and Soliz' was raised to $250,000.
Soliz was taken back into custody after the bail review.
They are charged in connection with a woman in the 400 block of San Emidio Street in late May.

The victim, whose name is not being released, told police she was walking in the north alley of the 400 block of San Emidio Street about 1 p.m. on May 31 when the two suspects, who she knew, confronted her.

During the dispute, the victim told police, the suspects assaulted her, threatened her with pepper spray and then dragged her to a nearby house, where she was struck with a baseball bat and forced to surrender personal items, including a cell phone.

She was then released and went to the medical clinic for treatment of her injuries and police were called.
The next court hearing for Burell and Soliz is July 31.
