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,” trooper Mike Goble said.
Sweet… a redneck pastor allegedly beats his wife silly for ten years. Then gets arrested wearing a fundie shirt.
