Boyle was rescued in late 2017 in Pakistan, along with his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, and their three young children, all of whom were born in captivity. Shortly after landing in Canada, Boyle, 34, told reporters that his wife had been raped and one of their children was killed. This week police in Ottawa laid 15 charges against Boyle, including eight counts of assault, two counts of sexual assault, two counts of unlawful confinement and one count of uttering death threats.
