Home invaders torture middle Ga. man

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ga. -- A Twiggs County man tortured Saturday morning during a home invasion robbery was burned with hot scissors an estimated 40 times, according to the Twiggs County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigator Robert Rodgers told The Macon Telegraph that the assailants took apart a pair of scissors and heated one of the blades using a gas stove.

Robert Luce, 61, was burned on his neck and back while the men demanded to know where he kept money in his home.

Paul Stafford, 41, of Laurens County, is accused of burning Luce during the torture, which also included beating Luce while he was bound with duct tape, Rodgers said.
