Rodney Lukasik and Brian Murphy pleaded not guilty on Thursday to felony charges of aggravated kidnapping and assault with a weapon.

Court documents state the female victim knew the men and had been involved in a sexual relationship with Lukasik, who she said supplied her with methamphetamine.

According to court documents, she went to to Lukasik's house last month and admitted to taking money from him and said Murphy confronted her about another incident that happened back in May.

She said Lukasik returned with Robert Hoenjet  and the men attacked her by putting out a cigarette on her arm, shocked her several times with a stun gun and put a butane torch near her head burning some of her hair.

Court documents state the men threatened to kill her, first putting a gun to her head and then trying to strangle her with wire before she managed to escape.

Lukasik faces an additional charge of possession of a dangerous drug.

Trial for both men has been set for February 16th.
