OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A judge has ordered an Omaha couple accused of kidnapping and torturing a woman last month to stand trial.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1vwd1oe ) a Douglas County judge ruled Friday that there is enough evidence to try 25-year-old Shavontae Green and 33-year-old Ronald F. Ford Jr.

Police say Green and Ford kidnapped a woman on Jan. 15 and took her home, where they sexually assaulted and tortured her.

Green has been charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, sexual assault, tampering with physical evidence and assault. Ford faces the same charges, as well as use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony and an additional count of sexual assault.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Green. An attorney for Ford could not be located.
