She told sheriff’s investigators that Longoria came to her parents’ home in the 3000 block of Wimberly Street in Houston and demanded she accompany him to his apartment on Wayforest Drive. Longoria threatened to kill the woman’s elderly and disabled parents if the victim did not comply with his demands, she told investigators.

The woman told investigators she started to scream when the man burned her vagina, so he stuffed a rag into her mouth and secured the rag with an unknown object, causing her to gag. The woman said Longoria then put a pillow over her face to muffle her screams, which caused her to have difficulty breathing and to black out, court records show.
The woman said Longoria also choked her with a belt, around her neck, which made it difficult for her to breathe.
She concocted a rouse to get away by saying she had a job interview. Investigators say she convinced Longoria that the couple needed the money. He agreed to let her and told her to take a shower.
Investigators observed the burns to the woman’s body, which were consistent with her description of what happened. A doctor at Kingwood Medical Center told investigators that the woman will require reconstructive surgery on her vagina and breasts and will suffer permanent disfigurement as a result of the attack, court records show.
The victim also had a large bruise to her left jaw and bruises to her chest, neck and arms, investigators said. The abuse had been going on for several years, but the victim kept it to herself, officials said.
