A Houston couple, accused of torturing animals to make crush videos for sexual fetishists, has been arrested. Ashley Nichole Richards, 21, and Brent Wayne Justice, 51, are facing up to two years in prison for animal cruelty. The couple allegedly produced and sold videos of Richards torturing animals to fulfill requests from costumers who find sexual gratification in watching animals tortured, sometimes crushed.
According to KVUE News, the details of the case are so graphic a judge stopped the allegations from being read at one point in the probable cause hearing. Richards is accused of using kitchen knives and a meat clever to torture a pit-bull puppy in one video and stomping on a cat with high heels on in another.
The couple was brought to the attention of PETA by a concerned citizen who came across the videos showing puppies, kittens, rabbits, mice and other animals being tortured and killed.

A promising lead about the whereabouts of Phoenix Coldon turned out to be a cruel hoax, causing the missing Missouri woman’s family additional pain, their entire life savings and their home.
“Unfortunately, we will now be losing our family home,” the missing woman’s mother, Goldia Coldon, told The Huffington Post. “We have tried to explain the situation to our mortgage company but they don’t care.”
A tip that led the family to Texas came from a man who claimed to know Coldon’s whereabouts and provided her family with very convincing details, Goldia Coldon said. The family already had invested much of their money to search for Phoenix, she said, but spent the remainder of their savings on private investigators to follow up on the lead. It was not until after the family’s money was gone that the man who provided the tip admitted he fabricated the story, Coldon said.
