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.
