THE lawyer for the wife of accused US kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido says his client misses the children her husband allegedly fathered with his victim, and says she saw them all as a family.
Nancy Garrido’s lawyer told CBS’s The Early Show yesterday that his client says she loves the girls.
Authorities say Phillip Garrido fathered Jaycee Lee Dugard’s two daughters, now aged 11 and 15.
The Garridos were arrested last week and charged in the kidnapping, rape and imprisonment of Dugard, who was 11 years old when she was snatched outside her home in 1991.
Lawyer Gilbert Maines also appeared on ABC and NBC yesterday, saying Nancy Garrido seemed distraught and frightened during his first meeting with her.
But he says she realises why she is in jail.
