SPOKANE, Wash. — Court documents are giving new details into the assault of a woman that led to a standoff with deputies in Spokane County.
Dana Keener, 43, was arrested Tuesday morning following a four-hour standoff with Spokane County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team members. Keener has been charged with second degree assault and first degree kidnapping. He is being held at the Spokane County Jail on $50,000 bond.
Spokane County Sheriff’s officials said Keener was held up in a home in the 3900 block of East Center Road with the assault victim’s 7-year-old son. Authorities said he was not answering commands to open the door.
Keener eventually exited the home and was taken into custody, officials said. The 7-year-old was not injured, deputies said.
According to documents, Keener was roommates with the victim and he often watched her son while she was at work.
The victim told detectives for two days Keener would not let her leave, took her car keys, smashed her phone, beat her and threw her down the stairs, according to a warrant filed to search the home.
Detectives wrote in court documents that the victim had injuries to her head, arms, back, stomach and legs. Courts documents said the victim’s hair was very thin and cut short. The victim told detectives Keener had pulled chunks of her hair out and eventually chopped it off with a knife.
According to court documents, the detectives said the victim’s injuries were “consistent with being assaulted, strangled and tortured over a significant period.”
The victim said Keener forced her to strip and take cold showers while her son was in another room with headphones on, documents said. She said he slammed the front and back of her head on the bathroom floor, choked her and ripped her shirt, according to court records.
The victim said Keener takes hydrocodone and Zanax and has a traumatic brain injury, documents said.
Court documents said the victim was able to escape Tuesday and go to a neighbor’s house to call for help. She was evaluated by medical staff and it was learned she had suffered a brain bleed.
