COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The father and stepmother of an Ohio kidnap victim who survived the murder of her mother and brother have been charged with assaulting her and ordered to stay away from the teenager.

Larry and Tracy Maynard face misdemeanor charges of domestic violence and assault stemming from the alleged incidents earlier this month.

Sheriff's reports say Larry Maynard hit 16-year-old Sarah Maynard in the back and head, and say Tracy Maynard kicked the girl down the stairs at their home in suburban Columbus.

Franklin County Children Services is investigating.

Attorneys for the couple, who have a pre-trial hearing next month, would not comment.

Sarah Maynard was kidnapped for four days in 2010 by an out-of-work tree-trimmer who later admitted killing three other people and stuffing their bodies in a hollow tree.
