For nearly three months, 13-year-old Jayme Closs was forced to hide in a two-and-a-half-foot space (less than 0.80 meters) beneath her kidnapper's bed, going without food, water or a bathroom for hours, too terrified to flee from a man she knew had fatally shot both of her parents.Patterson, 21, was charged Monday with two counts of intentional homicide, one count of kidnapping and one count of armed burglary. A judge set his bail at $5 million cash. Patterson was working at a cheese factory west of Barron when he stopped behind a school bus on his way to work and saw Jayme getting on.Jayme told police that her dog began to bark.Hearing a shotgun blast, Jayme said she knew her father was dead. Patterson dragged Jayme outside, nearly slipping in the blood on the floor.Jayme told police she could hear the sirens.It's unclear what Patterson may have done to her over the months she spent in the cabin.During the Christmas holidays he left, forcing Jayme to endure 12 hours under the bed without a bathroom break, according to the complaint.Patterson is due back in court on Feb. 6 .
