MARSHFIELD (WXOW) – 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.
