STOCKTON, California (AP) -- Prosecutors say they will not file charges against a father and son arrested on suspicion of kidnapping the father's ex-wife in California to perform an exorcism.

Deputy District Attorney Robert Himelblau told The Record of Stockton (http://bit.ly/HUUVUQ) on Thursday that 42-year-old Jose Magana-Farias and 20-year-old Victor Farias would not be charged. He declined to say why.

The father and son were accused of kidnapping 41-year-old Blanca Farias on Saturday. They were arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit a crime.

Blanca Farias told News10 in Sacramento they told her she had devils inside her and took her to a church, where they bathed her in oil and made her drink it.
