    According to officials investigating the two Amish girls who went missing, a northern New York couple used a dog to entice the two girls from their family farm stand. Nicole F. Viasey and Stephen M. Howells II allegedly shackled the children and planned to turn them into slaves. While the girls were later found and believed to be unharmed, the county district attorney says the children were sexually abused. Vaisey's lawyer claims the woman isn't as culpable as her boyfriend because she is in a master-slave relationship herself.
