It is not clear from court documents why the criminal complaint wasn't filed until this week.
Kidgell and Zhang were married and continued a business relationship after the couple became estranged, according to an affidavit filed by Wichita police Sgt. D.G. Oblinger in support of the charges. Zhang was also arrested last week for prostitution.
Kidgell allegedly acknowledged during that interview to placing ads in a Chinese-language newspaper in New York and Los Angeles to recruit women to work for them, but claimed he did not know what the employees were doing.
Several of the female employees told police they came to work in the massage parlors because they were told they would make a lot of money. Once they were in Wichita, they found the work was difficult and they did not earn much. Some said they were told never to leave the business because the area around the parlors was dangerous.
