Trevor Case, 22, has been charged with domestic assault, false imprisonment, and making terroristic threats in connection with the bizarre incident early Saturday morning at the Lincoln home he shared with the 22-year-old victim.
Police allege that Case stuffed “hospital socks” into Danielle Stallworth’s mouth and bound her wrists with belts and hair ties before placing a shirt over her head and dousing it with water, according to a Lincoln Police Department report. “He poured a pitcher of water on her head, and she started freaking out and thought she wasn’t able to breathe,” according to a court filing.
The waterboarding practice, of course, leaves victims with the sensation that they are drowning.
“As she was trying to get up, she clawed Case on his chest,” cops reported. When the couple’s young daughter awoke, “Case stated that he would help her get untied.” When questioned by police, Case admitted arguing with Stallworth, but denied tying her up. An officer noted observing “injuries on Stallworth’s wrist, arm and thighs.”
Case, pictured in the above mug shot, is being held on $150,000 bond at the Lancaster County jail.
