EUGENE, Ore. -- A Eugene couple have been charged with aggravated murder in what court documents describe as the "intentional maiming and torture" of a teenage daughter.
The Lane County sheriff's office said the victim was 16-year-old Jeanette Maples, daughter of Angela Darlene McAnulty.
The 41-year-old mother and 40-year-old Richard Anthony McAnulty were arrested early Thursday, arraigned, and held in the Lane County jail.
The Register-Guard newspaper in Eugene said prosecutors allege in court documents the death was in the course of, or as a result of, the violence. No cause of death was specified.
The sheriff's office says a caller told 911 dispatchers Wednesday night that someone at Maples' house wasn't breathing.
Deputies say an ambulance took Maples to a hospital, but she died.
