SEYMOUR, Ind. - A southern Indiana man has been arrested after police say he forced his wife to sign a contract to be his slave.
Kenneth Harden was being held Thursday on charges including rape, criminal deviate conduct and criminal confinement. The man also faces domestic battery charges.
The victim became his wife in July 2013 after she met him on Craigslist.
A probable cause affidavit says the 32-year-old man forced his wife to wear a choker collar, bound her with ropes and duct tape and tortured her. Police who were called to the man's home Saturday night found the woman with marks around her neck and burns on her body from cigarettes.
Police asked the victim why she did not leave the relationship. She said that Harden controlled the medicine for her severe diabetes and she felt she could not leave.
