PHOENIX (AP) -- Authorities say a Chandler man and two women have been indicted in connection with a bestiality case.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials say 49-year-old Christopher Lynn Jackson and 61-year-old Josephine Erikson were arrested Sept. 17 and 48-year-old Mary Kanitz was taken into custody the next day.

An Arizona grand jury has indicted the three of knowingly engaging in sex acts with a dog.

Sheriff's investigators say a search of Jackson's home uncovered a video implicating him and the two women.

Authorities didn't immediately know Tuesday if either Jackson, Kanitz or Erikson has an attorney yet.

Jackson was arrested Sept. 3 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.
