A follow up to a story we broke earlier today:
According to a probable cause affidavit, Chase Tanner Anglemyer, 21, took a woman from a residence in Bremen, beat her with a screwdriver and took her to another residence. While at that residence, Anglemyer is alleged to have shaved the woman's head, wrapped the cord of the electric trimmer around her neck and choked her until she was no longer conscious. When police arrived, Anglemyer allegedly said "She's dead."
The victim was revived and taken to a South Bend hospital.

Organizers are hoping the second time's a charm for a national-level ice fishing tournament scheduled for the weekend of Feb. 9 and 10 on Lake Maxinkuckee -- and if recent temperatures, and the ice forming on the lake as of press time are any indication, they may get their wish.
PLYMOUTH â€” As the swim season winds down, Plymouthâ€™s swim squads can reflect back on an unusual season.
With the closing of the PHS pool last year to make way for the new School of Inquiry technology center, the 2012-13 season got off to inauspicious beginnings. Plymouth contracted with nearby Oregon-Davis to host its swim practices, and the daily drive has cut into the teamsâ€™ time in the water. Without any home meets, a schedule set exclusively on the road has been challenging too.
But the Pilgrims have made the best of it.
