SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Two men and one woman have been charged with kidnapping and torturing a prostitute at a Southern California motel.
The Orange County District Attorney's office said the defendants are scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday and face charges of human trafficking, kidnapping and torture.
Renice Stevenson Flores-Davis is accused of burning the 26-year-old with a heated glass pipe used to ingest methamphetamine, tying her to a chair, blindfolding her and duct-taping her mouth.
Officials say he left her with Oscar Gonzalez-Salinas and Cierra Rose Thompson. Flores-Davis and Gonzalez-Salinas are accused of waterboarding the victim. Thompson is accused of aiding and assisting in the torture.
Police say they received a Facebook tip that led to the three arrests.
It wasn't immediately clear if the defendants had attorneys.
