FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -– The case of a former pastor accused of assaulting his wife for years was bound over to a grand jury on Wednesday.

37-year-old Alonzo Bradley was arrested and charged with assault in what detectives call one of the worse cases of domestic violence they have seen. Bradley is accused of torturing his wife for years.

Police say he used to be the pastor at the Freedom Pentecostal Church on Conley Fork in Floyd County; but detectives say behind closed doors he tortured his wife for a decade.

“It's just a horrendous case. It's one of the worst assaults we've seen on a woman in a long time. Sadistic type injuries to this woman of beating with implements and using instruments to actually burn her with and so forth, so it's just a terrible situation,” said KSP trooper Mike Goble.

The woman is now in a safe place.

Bradley's attorney did not want to comment on the allegations according to our sister station WYMT-TV
