A man and his partner have been arrested for torturing the man’s estranged wife for days by sodomising her with a baseball bat and cutting off one of her fingers, as well as forcing her head into a toilet.
Justin J. Wilson, aged 31, and Nicole K. Elmore, aged 35, were arrested at the end of last week regarding allegations that they brutally tortured Wilson’s estranged wife for six days beginning on New Year’s Eve.
They are accused of kidnapping, aggravated sexual abuse and assault.
The victim, who has not been named but who is aged 37, has claimed that her ordeal began on New Year’s Eve at around 8.30pm. Wilson and Elmore went to the victim’s residence in Gloversville, which is a city in upstate New York, and allegedly kidnapped her at gunpoint.
The victim claims she was taken to a trailer following a 45-minute drive and thrown into a locked room with a pit bull.
The woman told New York State Police: “Throughout the entire time I was with Justin, he was threatening to kill me and told me if I didn’t kill myself, he would kill me.
“He beat me, burned me, cut off my finger, sodomised me and I thought I was going to die.”
On the second day, she was allegedly made to undress before being burnt on her hand, her back, her rib cage and her forearm.
On the third day, she was allegedly made to clean up dog faeces in the trailer before being made to perform a sex act on Wilson. Wilson then allegedly cut off the tip of the little finger on her right hand and used a flame to cauterise the wound.
The victim claims that the following day, she was sodomised by Wilson using a baseball bat, while on day five, the suspects allegedly drove the victim to a hotel in Amsterdam, New York, where they continued to torture her.
The victim alleges that she was whipped with a charging cable tied to a spanner and that she was made to put her head into a urine-filled toilet.
The woman then reportedly managed to escape and take a taxi to her grandfather’s home. He took her to hospital and then called the police, and officers arrested Wilson late on Thursday evening after a stand-off that lasted two hours, while Elmore was also arrested after being found in a car.
