The former kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart has married her boyfriend Matthew Gilmour in Hawaii. Tmz have shown a picture of the happy couple together, with a story confirming that the couple married yesterday (February 19, 2012). The ceremony reportedly took place in a Mormon temple on the North Shore of Oahu, the largest of the Hawaiian islands.
In the picture, the young couple are dressed casually, Elizabeth (24) in a black dress and Matthew (22) in sportswear. The couple have been dating for a year and got engaged around a month ago, before getting married yesterday. Elizabeth Smart, a former Brigham Young student hit the headlines in 2002 when she was kidnapped from her home and held captive by Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Ileen Barzee. Whilst in captivity, Smart was subjected to daily sexual assaults. She was found by police nine months after she had been abducted.
For many years, Brian David Mitchell was deemed unfit for trial. His wife, Wanda, was sentenced in 2009 to 15 years' imprisonment. That same year, a nurse stated that she believed Mitchell to have been faking psychiatric symptoms and behaviours, in order that he could avoid prosecution. In May 2011, he was finally put on trial and convicted, with the jury rejecting an insanity plea. He was sentenced to life in jail. He is currently serving his sentence at a high security jail in Tucson.
