Earlier today, Phillip and Nancy Garrido were charged with 29 felony counts relating to the kidnapping of South Lake Tahoe resident Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was held captive in their backyard for over 18 years.  Now, details are beginning to emerge about their past, and specifically, how they met.  Officials are saying that the couple initially met while Phillip Garrido was serving time in a federal prison in Levenworth, Kansas, for abducting a different woman from the same ski resort area of South Lake Tahoe.  No further details about how exactly they met while he was in prison are available as of yet.  Garrido was serving a 50-year sentence after being convicted of federal kidnapping and rape for his abduction of the other woman from South Lake Tahoe.
