Pastor charged with assault

A former pastor in Floyd County is arrested and charged with assault in what detectives call one of the worse cases of domestic violence they have seen.

37-year-old Alonzo Bradley is accused of torturing his wife for years.

Wednesday afternoon Bradley's case was waived to a grand jury.

Police and domestic violence shelter directors say this case is an example of domestic violence increasing in the Big Sandy region.

Bradley was arrested wearing a "Be Like Jesus" t-shirt.

Police say he used to be the pastor at the Freedom Pentecostal Church on Conley Fork in Floyd County, but detectives say behind closed doors he tortured his wife for a decade.

“It's just a horrendous case. It's one of the worst assaults we've seen on a woman in a long time. Sadistic type injuries to this woman of beating with implements and using instruments to actually burn her with and so forth, so it's just a terrible situation,” trooper Mike Goble said.

The woman is now in a safe place.

Bradley's attorney did not want to comment.

Police say the case involving the former pastor shows alleged abuse is happening in all walks of life.

“It occurs in the richest of families to the very poorest of families,” Trooper Goble said.

“It's all about power and control, it has nothing to do with your status in the community,” Elizabeth Fitch said.

Bradley is being held on a 250-thousand dollar bond. Police say more charges are pending.
