WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Canton man was sentenced to eight years in prison Wednesday for the brutal assault of his ex-girlfriend at her Liberty apartment in April.
Johnny King, 40, pleaded guilty to all charges — aggravated burglary, felonious assault, kidnapping and aggravated robbery with repeat offender specifications.
Investigators said King forced his way into his ex-girlfriend’s Holly Drive apartment, holding the woman against her will. The victim’s teenage daughter, who was hiding in a bedroom, called 911.
When officers arrived, they found the woman with cuts and bruises to her face and neck, as well as a broken tooth and nose. She told police that King choked and punched her until she was unconscious and then demanded money and a ride from the home.
