2 Iowans accused of robbing, torturing man

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Two Sioux City residents have been accused of robbing and torturing a man at their apartment.

Police say 33-year-old Melissa Lowe and 32-year-old Brandon Keleher were arrested Saturday morning. Online court records say they’re both charged with two felonies: willful injury and robbery.

Officers were sent to the apartment after a neighbor complained about a disturbance there. The officers say they found a man who’d been stabbed and burned with a kitchen utensil that had been heated.

The man said he’d met the couple Friday night. He was taken to a hospital for treatment, and he was released later.

Lowe and Keleher remained in Woodbury County custody on Monday. Online court records don’t list the names of their attorneys.
