CHANDLER, Ariz. -- A man arrested for aggravated assault on Sept. 3 for allegedly branding his initials on his girlfriend is now accused of bestiality, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

MCSO says Christopher Lynn Jackson, 47, is accused of using a branding iron and butane to burn his initials onto the vagina of at least one woman, marking her as "his property." There may be more victims.

The branding investigation led detectives to a separate investigation.

Detectives served a search warrant Monday at Jackson's Chandler home where they seized a computer and DVDs.

The seized videos show Jackson and two different women separately performing various sex acts with a male German shepherd.

The bestiality case resulted in Jackson being re-arrested. He is currently in jail on bestiality charges and has a $30,000 bond.

Sheriff’s detectives also arrested one of the women seen in the videos orally copulating and engaging in intercourse with the dog. She is Josephine Erikson, 61. Erikson is currently in jail on bestiality charges. She was arrested Monday at her home in Gilbert.

According to court documents the German shepherd was at Erikson's home. He is now being cared for at the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office MASH unit in the First Avenue Jail.

Another woman seen participating in sex acts in the video has yet to be located.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was briefed about the details of both investigations and called what was seen in the videos appalling.

“The pain this suspect must have caused when burning his initials onto their [the victims] genitals is incomprehensible,” Arpaio stated in a press release. “To treat women like property and then to encourage them to participate in acts of bestiality is disgusting.”
