CHARLESTON, W. Va. – A West Virginia man is accused of battering a pregnant woman and injecting her with methamphetamine without their consent.
News outlets reported Tuesday that the indictment against the 21-year-old Kyle Wilson Stowers, said he hit the woman in the head, face and upper body and beat her legs with a baseball bat at a Charleston home on Dec. 21. Before the flight, he injected what the victim says meth in her arm against her will.
The woman told the police Stowers “left her for dead.” According to the complaint, she is 37 weeks pregnant. The police did not say what Stowers’ motive was.
Charleston police caught Stowers shortly after he fled. He is accused of abuse, and his bail is set at $10,000. The news reports say it is unclear whether he has a lawyer.
