TULSA - A man who was booked into a Tulsa jail with part of a woman's ear in his pocket has been formally charged.
Prosecutors charged Joseph Hall Jr. with eight counts, including kidnapping, maiming and assault and battery.
Hall, 24, was arrested last week after a woman told police she was assaulted and held against her will by Hall, her child's father.
According to the arrest report, the woman had visible injuries to her face, head, torso, arms and legs. She had bite marks on her body and a portion of her right ear had been torn or cut off.
The woman also had broken ribs and a collapsed lung.
Blood stains and clumps of hair matching the victim's were also found with Hall.
He's due in court Friday.
