A California man is accused of torturing his ex-girlfriend, locking her in a dog crate for hours at a time over a period of five months before she was able to escape.
Frank Guerra, 22, pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges including kidnapping and battery, The Turlock Journal reported. He was denied bail and is barred from contacting the woman.
The alleged abuse occurred between Aug. 1, 2015 and Jan. 4, 2016. The woman was eventually able to get away, though she didn’t contact police until February.
