SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A 21-year-old Omak man who scalded an 18-year-old woman with boiling water and beat her with a propane canister has been sentenced to nine years in federal prison.
The Wenatchee World reports (http://bit.ly/XqDcaf) Daniel Quilochin Fry was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty last April to assault with a dangerous weapon and maiming. The charges were handled by federal authorities because the incidents happened in a house on the Colville Indian Reservation.
The woman told authorities during the investigation that Fry abused her over a period of five months in 2011 when they shared the home. The abuse included locking her in a closet and dousing her with cold water, beatings, choking her, stabbing her in the hand with a knife, and threatening her with a firearm. The maiming charge comes from Fry forcing her to lie on the floor and then poured scalding water on her legs and back.
