The woman also said Hinton began abusing her about four or five months after their relationship started. She accused Lakisha Hinton of beating her with a belt, torturing her with a stun gun and burning her with cigarettes.

She said the prostitution started in Milwaukee and she had been living mainly in hotels with Hinton since they met. Lakisha Hinton uses backpages or Craigslist websites to initiate contact with men and arranged between one and eight prostitution meetings per day, the woman reported. She also said she had attempted to escape in the past but was caught and severely beaten by Hinton, the complaint said.

Investigators also learned that Lemark Hinton is usually with his sister and the woman and the van that was being used belonged to him.
