(Newser) – It took more than a year after their arrest, but Phillip and Nancy Garrido have been indicted in the kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard. Nancy Garrido’s lawyer says a grand jury handed up the indictment this week after secret proceedings. Now the couple can be arraigned on the charges as soon as Oct. 1, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. “I had assumed they weren't going to” indict, the lawyer tells People. “I'm surprised they waited so long.”

Perhaps more surprising than that is the fact that Nancy Garrido is upset that Dugard and her two daughters—fathered by Phillip Garrido—haven’t visited the couple in jail. “They're still running out my Kleenex budget,” the lawyer says. “She wants to see the kids and Jaycee.”
