HIGH FALLS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a Monroe County man is
being held on allegations he cut his girlfriend several times with
a sword.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Friday
that 44-year-old Grover Allen Vigil of High Falls is charged with
aggravated battery in the Sept. 5 incident. The statement says
further charges may be pending after review by the district
attorney's office.
Deputies responded to Vigil's home at 3:30 a.m. Sept. 5 and
found a 35-year-old woman with serious injuries. Sheriff's office
spokeswoman Allison Selman-Willis said the woman had been sliced in
several places and had extensive injuries from cuts on her face.
Selman-Willis said the woman was taken to the Medical Center of
Central Georgia and has been released.
