The incident took place on May 6th and began with a 911 call with a female screaming for help. Dispatch used a cell phone tower to find the victim’s location.

King allegedly began hitting her in the face with a four pound hammer. The victim told police that King said he was going to “light her up” and kill her. When Police asked what that meant, she said  that she believed King intended use fuel from a gas can located in the vehicle to light her on fire.

King will be tried at a later date and remains in the Natrona County Detention Center on a bond of $250,000.
