Ladysmith man charged with beating pregnant girlfriend


Rusk Co. (WQOW) - A man faces charges of hitting a pregnant woman in the stomach during a domestic dispute in Rusk County.

Kristopher Pahl, from Ladysmith, was arrested earlier this month. A woman told police she is pregnant with his child, and that he became angry when she told him she did not want to be in a relationship.

Police say the woman said Pahl hit her approximately 20 times and held her down and punched her once in the abdominal area. They say the woman had been bleeding and had severe bruising on her face and two black eyes.

Pahl faces four charges, including false imprisonment and attempted battery to an unborn child, a misdemeanor.
