The Kingman man who allegedly tortured and sexually assaulted his wife and her eleven-year-old son was arraigned in Mohave County Superior Court Thursday. Not guilty pleas were entered on behalf of Jerry Gilligan, 69.

Gilligan previously served more than two decades in prison for the murder of his step-father in Tucson and he was released on parole three years ago. Gilligan is named in a 26 count indictment charging him with a number of sex offenses as well as assault and kidnapping counts.

Gilligan’s next hearing is a November 7 case management conference before Judge Billy Sipe.
