— A 22-year-old Goshen man was sentenced to 25 years in prison Thursday on a charge of attempted murder.

Chase Anglemyer will also serve five years on probation, according to the sentence handed down by Marshall County Judge Robert O. Bowen. The prison term was arrived at through a plea agreement.

The incident occurred Jan. 30 in the 200 block of South Washington Street in Bremen at approximately 10:30 a.m.  Anglemyer was accused of breaking into his former girlfriend’s home and abducting the young woman by dragging her to another home on Woodies Lane.

There, he hit the woman several times with a screwdriver and shaved her head as she was in a semi-conscious state. Anglemyer then wrapped an electric cord around her neck and choked her until she lost consciousness.

When Bremen police confronted Anglemyer about the woman’s whereabouts, he responded, “She’s dead.”

Chief Deputy Prosecutor Nelson Chipman said in open court that “this is a case of escalating domestic violence. Mr. Anglemyer was convicted as recent as Oct. 26, 2012, in Pike County for domestic battery on the same victim. The No Contact Order and probationary period seemed to have no effect to deter the incident. It came so very close to an unthinkable tragedy but for the quick action of the Bremen Police Department.”
