TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – An Ohio man admits he attacked his wife’s lover and bit off part of the man’s ear after finding the pair in bed together.
Virgil Bates III told a judge in Toledo that he went into his house in late June to find out if his wife was lying about breaking off her affair with the other man.
Bates says he found them in bed and put his wife’s lover in a headlock. He told the judge that the man bit his arm and that’s when he bit back.
Bates pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on Monday.
Prosecutors tell The Blade newspaper that they’ll recommend probation and time at a correctional treatment facility for the 40-year-old Toledo man.
