An Atlanta man is now in jail, and his wife in the hospital, after it was discovered that he had tied her up and tortured her for several days inside their home.
According to WSB-TV, Aaron Uchitel has been charged with aggravated battery, false imprisonment and cruelty to children after he was found to have drugged his wife, beat and sexually assaulted her for two days.
The cruelty to children charge was perhaps the worst aspect of this entire horrifying story, as it stemmed from the fact that the married couple’s 2-week-old infant was present in the room throughout the entire atrocity.
Prosper Ortega, Uchitel’s 23-year-old wife and mother of the child, remained in the hospital with severe injuries and bruising to her arms, body and face. It is suspected that she may never regain her eyesight again, as the man allegedly poked her in the eyes repeatedly during the ordeal with the apparent intent of blinding her.
Fawn Ortega, the woman’s mother, rescued her daughter after she became concerned when she hadn’t heard from her in a couple of days. She was able to force her way into the home after the man initially attempted to prevent her from entering.
“(I thought) she was gonna die,” Fawn Ortega said. “Everything was just so swollen and her little mouth.”
“It was an evil person in there and he was going to kill her,” she added.
According to the police, the scumbag admitted while in jail that he had in fact hit his wife “a couple of times,” though that was obviously something of an understatement.
As for the newly born child, he is now in the care of his loving grandmother.
Violence against the helpless is about the worst there is. For those interested in helping this poor woman cope with the mounting expense of extensive medical procedures, not to mention the prospect of months, if not years, of physical and mental therapy, a GoFundMe account has been set up to assist the family with the bills.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter as a horrific example of what real domestic violence looks like.
