ISABELLA COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Mt. Pleasant man was sentenced to four and a half years in prison for domestic assault.

The sentencing stems from an incident that happened on April 3 on the Isabella Indian Reservation.

Charles Benz, 39, broke into the home of his girlfriend, got on top of her and intentionally squeezed her face, U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said.

The incident left red marks on the victim's face and caused her pain.

Benz pleaded guilty on June 24 and was sentenced on Oct. 27 for domestic assault by an habitual offender.

The case was investigated by the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police.
