PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A self-employed photographer and her flight-attendant husband pleaded not guilty Monday morning to conspiracy to commit bestiality, according to a Maricopa County Superior Court official.
Sarah Dae Walker, 33, and Shane Walker, 38, both of Pinal County, were two of three people arrested Feb. 27 after a Maricopa County Sheriff's Office investigation.
Robert A. Aucker, 29, of Gilbert, was also arrested. All three are suspected of using Craigslist to find a dog for the woman to have sex with, according to the sheriff's office.
The three are alleged to have contacted an undercover deputy for the services of a male golden retriever-German shepherd mix.
A sheriff's office spokesman said the Walkers described themselves as "swingers" who enjoy an "open marriage." Aucker told detectives he and Sarah Walker have had a sexual relationship for the last month and that she shared with him dreams of having sex with a dog.
Shane Walker is a flight attendant and Aucker a car salesman, according to a sheriff's office news release. The Walkers are Pinal County residents.
The arrests prompted Sheriff Joe Arpaio to issue a second warning to the head of Craigslist.
"You are essentially providing a platform for the propagation of unconscionable behavior," Arpaio said in a letter to CEO Jim Buckmaster.
Arpaio expressed his disapproval of Buckmaster for failing to make improvements in procedures the sheriff cited in his first letter sent to the CEO on March 15, 2011, after a similar arrest.
Arpaio has asked Buckmaster to re-evaluate his monitoring procedures and policies for the popular website.
The Walkers' next court appearance will be at 8:15 a.m. May 14.
