A Casey County man was arrested earlier this week after allegedly holding his girl friend against her will for two days.
Casey County Deputy Sheriff, Chad Weddle, responded Monday to a residence at 1439 Dry Ridge Road in reference to a domestic disturbance. According to the arrest citation, the victim reported that 43 year old Jeffrey M. McQueary had not allowed her to leave the residence, with the exception of going to a neighbors house to get cigarettes. She said McQueary told her if she didn't come back, he would hurt the neighbor. She told the neighbor she was being held, and needed help. She then attempted to run away, but said McQueary caught her and drug her back inside the residence.
The citation also states the woman had marks on various locations on her body, and stated she'd been struck with a ball bat.
McQueary is facing charges of Assault-4th Degree (Domestic Violence-Minor Injury), Unlawful Imprisonment-1st Degree, & Kidnapping of an adult. He was lodged in the Casey County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond.
