If the allegations contained in court papers are true, then Gregory Longoria Jr. is a very sick dude.
Documents show he's been accused of sexually abusing his estranged wife by -- and this is only part of what he's alleged to have done -- using hairspray and a cigarette lighter to burn her vagina and one of her nipples, and then pulling the burnt nipple from the body.
This was in the course of tying her up, gagging her, beating her savagely around the face and trying to smother her.
KHOU had the story first, and the Harris County Sheriff's Office will be holding a press conference on the case later today.
Court documents say Longoria went to his wife's parents' house and ordered her and their one-year-old daughter to come with him.

At an apartment in the 17700 block of Wayforest, he forced her to strip and began taking "obsene and erotic" photographs of her.
That quickly descended into the sadistic madness outlined above.
Longoria has a record that showed a checkered past: He's been arrested for theft, attempted murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault of a family member and unlawfully carrying a weapon, KHOU reports.
Court documents indicate the wife will require reconstructive surgery and be permanently disfigured from the attack.
