Wis. DA: Man doused pregnant woman with gas


MARSHFIELD (WKOW) – A Marshfield man is due in court next week on charges that he threatened to set a pregnant woman on fire after dousing her with gasoline.

According to our sister station WAOW-TV, Tyler s. Ress has an initial appearance scheduled for Monday morning.

Authorities said the 23-year-old faces four felony charges, including first-degree recklessly endangering safety and attempting to cause an abortion.  Ress also faces three misdemeanor charges.

Prosecutors said Ress assaulted the pregnant 28-year-old Marshfield woman in September.  Authorities said he punched the woman in the stomach several times and tried to strangle her during a three-hour domestic ordeal.

According to online records, Ress did not have a defense attorney listed on Saturday.
