Alabama couple charged with sexually torturing renter
Posted September 14
OHATCHEE, Ala. — Authorities say an Alabama couple is charged with sexual torture after they were accused of assaulting a man renting a room in their home with a metal pole and a garden hose.
Calhoun County authorities say 34-year-old Dustin Lee Bragg and 49-year-old Barbie Gordon Vaughn of Ohatchee were jailed Wednesday without bond.
Chief Deputy Matthew Wade says the couple posted an online advertisement offering a bedroom for rent, and a homeless couple moved in.
Wade says the landlords and the man got extremely drunk, and he fell off a porch into dog feces. Wade says the couple then sexually assaulted the man while washing him off.
Wade says the man was taken to a hospital Friday, and he's hospitalized in critical condition.
Court records aren't available to show whether Bragg and Vaughn have lawyers.
