According to Sheriff Soldan, between March 30 and the 31st at the 5400 block of E. North St. a couple got into an argument. It then escalated to alleged choking, keeping the victim at the residence against her will, and taking her phone.
The Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a welfare check when the victim’s family could not get into contact with her. The victim had physical signs of bruising consistent with choking.
Keith Eilert, 35, is facing charges of aggravated battery, criminal restraint, aggravated kidnapping, and damage to property.
