      A Florida couple accused of kidnapping their two sons and fleeing by boat to Cuba are back in the U.S.

      Joshua Michael Hakken and his wife Sharyn are being held in a Florida jail on charges of kidnapping, child neglect and interference with custody.

      Authorities say Joshua Hakken went into his mother-in-law's home near Tampa last Wednesday, tied her up and took the boys, ages 4 and 2.

      Hakken lost custody of them last year after a drug possession arrest.

      The boys are back in the custody of their maternal grandparents.
