The couple was identified as Alfio Anthony Granata, 46, and Jennifer Peaston, 32. Each of the defendants faces a total of 179 charges including 62 counts of rape, at least 85 counts of assault, making death threats, drug crimes and detaining a person against their will.

Prosecutors said that the couple has recorded more than 450 hours of video documenting the six-week abuse of the alleged victim. The victim’s suffering only ended when the victim stabbed Granata, and then attempted suicide.
