PERTH, N.Y. — An upstate New York man and his girlfriend are accused of holding the man’s estranged wife captive for days and brutally assaulting her before she managed to escape.
The 37-year-old woman told police she was kidnapped at gunpoint on New Year’s Eve and physically and sexually assaulted, The Times Union of Albany reported. She also said her pinky finger was cut off and cauterized.
Justin Wilson and Nicole Elmore were arraigned Friday and pleaded not guilty.
Wilson’s attorney said he has not yet discussed specifics with his client. A message was left with Elmore’s lawyer seeking comment.
