Barron County (WQOW) - Doctors said a Barron County woman may lose vision in one of her eyes after an attack she said continued for hours, and left her with many fractured and shattered bones.
The woman told investigators she was trying to convince Jason Rush to get treatment for meth addiction when he got angry. She said last Thursday he threw her to the ground and stomped on her stomach several times.
The next night, she said he repeatedly struck her with his fists and an aluminum pipe for about two hours. She said she lost consciousness, and when she came to, he was still beating her.
Rush faces charges of domestic abuse, aggravated battery, false imprisonment and intimidating a victim.
He returns to court March 22.
