Maricopa County Sheriff's officials arrested Jackson, 61-year-old Josephine Erikson and 48-year-old Mary Kanitz in September 2013.

Sheriff's investigators say a search of Jackson's home uncovered a video implicating all three.

Jackson was previously arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault in another case.

Authorities say he allegedly branded his initials on a then-girlfriend's genitals. Investigators reported finding a branding tool and butane torch in Jackson's house.
