Texas man charged in torture case goes on trial

Trial starts in case of Texas man accused of torturing woman on deer-skinning device By The Associated Press

WEATHERFORD, Texas (AP) ' Prosecutors say a North Texas woman was tortured on a deer-skinning device and chained to a bed before authorities found her and arrested her former neighbor.

Opening statements began Tuesday in Jeffrey Allan Maxwell's trial. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault.

His defense attorneys opted not to make an opening statement.



Parker County prosecutor Kathleen Catania told jurors the woman's DNA was found in Maxwell's vehicle and house. She said Maxwell abducted the woman from her home March 1 and drove her about 100 miles away to his house in Corsicana, about 75 miles southeast of Fort Worth, and held her for 12 days.

Catania says Maxwell even put the woman in a box when he would leave for errands.
