PRESTON COUNTY MAN ARRESTED IN DOMESTIC ABUSE CASE

Tunnelton, West Virginia resident Leonard Baker is in the Tygarts Valley Regional Jail in lieu of a half-million dollar bond, and a woman is on life support following a Monday incident. The Preston County Sheriff’s Department found an unresponsive female in an outbuilding; she had severe facial trauma with dried blood around her nose and mouth. Baker was taken into custody, while the victim was flown to the hospital for treatment. Baker told police he was with the victim, but wasn’t sure who she was; he had apparently given her a ride the day before, but had no injuries at that time.
