LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 28-year-old Lake Charles man was indicted Thursday on charges of aggravated battery and false imprisonment.

Jeremy Jerome Payne was arrested in February after being accused of beating a 29-year-old woman and holding her at gunpoint for several days.

"The victim stated she went to the suspect's address on her own, and an argument ensued. When the victim tried to leave, the suspect began beating her," Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said at the time.

Payne remains in the Calcasieu Correctional Center on a $40,000 bond.
