GRAND MARAIS, Minn. (AP) — A northeastern Minnesota couple has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an incident a year ago in which the woman's former lover was assaulted and terrorized.

Fifty-two-year-old Kevin Thompson of Grand Marais (muh-ray) pleaded guilty Tuesday to kidnapping, second-degree assault, terroristic threats, false imprisonment and criminal sexual conduct.

His 40-year-old wife, Susan Thompson, pleaded guilty to criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Under a plea agreement, Susan Thompson wouldn't have to spend time in prison.

Both testified that Kevin Thompson had learned of Susan's affair with another man and that Kevin Thompson asked Susan to lure the victim to their home. Kevin Thompson testified that he displayed a gun and forced the victim to have sexual contact with his wife.

Sentencing is set for July 7.
