A father and son are in custody in California on suspicion of kidnapping the father's ex-wife to perform an exorcism.

San Joaquin County Sheriff's officials say 42-year-old Jose Magana-Farias and his son, 20-year-old Victor Farias, thought the woman was possessed because her behavior had changed.

Lt. Mike Jones tells KCRA-TV they picked her up on Saturday in Stockton and got two priests. The priests aren't expected to face charges, according to the station.
