    Couple imprisoned for torturing roommate

    A couple who tortured a man they had befriended have each been jailed for four-and-a-half years. Martin Ferris, 28, and Selina Kay, 25, battered Charles Kelman in May and June while all three were living in Alness.

    They forced Mr Kelman, 32, into baths of cold water and bleach and cut and hit him, leaving him severely injured and permanently disfigured.

    The High Court in Edinburgh heard that he was imprisoned at times in his bedroom and the windows were covered.

    Ferris and Kay threatened to harm Mr Kelman if he told anyone about the abuse.

    Harm him more than they already did?
