PAW PAW, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman testified Wednesday that the father of her children tried to kill her last fall.
Kane Reeves was in a Paw Paw Wednesday for a preliminary examination, during which his alleged victim testified, according to a release from the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office.
Reeves is accused of breaking into Mary Teske’s Paw Paw Township home in October 2013 and attacking her. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene after a 911 caller reported seeing a man chasing a woman whose face was covered in blood. The deputies stopped the “vicious” assault and arrest Reeves.
Teske sustained facial injuries that required reconstructive surgery.
Reeves and Teske have three children together. He told investigators he thought she had been having an affair.
According to the sheriff’s department, another person also testified Wednesday, though the press release did not say who that other person was.
The charges against Reeves were amended to assault with intent to murder and first-degree home invasion.
Judge Robert Hentchel ruled there was enough evidence to send the case on to circuit court.
Reeves’ bond was continued and he remains lodged in the Van Buren County Jail.
