  • A Plato man was arrested just around midnight on Wednesday for allegedly choking and beating his wife to the point of unconsciousness.
     
    Late Tuesday night, a Pulaski County deputy responded to a domestic disturbance call in rural Pulaski County on Willow Road. After arriving on the scene, he found an unconscious woman who had been struck and choked by her husband during a fight. The woman had a large swollen area at the back of her head along with the swelling to the face and neck, according to a press release by the Sheriff's department.
     
    The husband, 44-year-old Jeffery Allen Nesslage of Plato, had left the scene before the deputy arrived, but was located and arrested just minutes later by Waynesville Police Officers.
     
    Nesslage is charged with one count of domestic assault in the first degree and remains in the Pulaski County Jail, pending the posting of his $100,000 bond.
     
    Nesslage could face between 5 and 15 years in prison upon conviction.
