KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The wife of a southwest Missouri man who tortured a young woman he kept for years as his sex slave has been sentenced in federal court along with two other men who participated in the abuse.

The Kansas City Star ( reports 48-year-old Marilyn Bagley received probation in Thursday's proceeding. Forty-seven-year-old James Noel and 65-year-old Michael Stokes both received five-year prison sentences.
