WEATHERFORD (AP) - A Texas man accused of torturing his former neighbor on a deer-skinning device for nearly two weeks was to appear at a pretrial hearing.

A judge Thursday was to decide whether to suppress Jeffrey Allan Maxwell’s statements to authorities and other evidence.

Maxwell goes on trial on aggravated sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping charges next month. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Authorities say Maxwell abducted his former neighbor at gunpoint from her home near Weatherford last March. He was arrested 12 days later at his Corsicana home about 100 miles away, where the woman was rescued.

According to documents, Maxwell told an investigator that he — quote — “strung her up” in his garage on a homemade rack used for skinning deer.
