A Logan man accused of beating a woman for several hours until her face was unrecognizable has been bound over to face charges filed in connection with that incident.

Courtney Edward Wood, 32, was arrested in North Logan on May 18 late Saturday night, several days after the alleged victim showed up at Logan Regional Hospital with serious facial injuries.

Woods was charged with aggravated kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault, domestic violence in the presence of a child, two counts of possession of a firearm by a restricted person and criminal mischief.

During a preliminary hearing in 1st District Court on Tuesday, Judge Kevin Allen listened to a recording of the woman as she told a police officer what had happened to her. This, along with the written report provided by a forensic nurse, were considered.

In addition, documentation was provided to demonstrate that Wood is prohibited from possessing firearms.

Wood was also charged in March with aggravated assault in a separate case and he will return to the courtroom for a preliminary hearing in that case on July 16.
