FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) – A 39-year-old Ogema man is charged with felony attempted murder for allegedly beating a woman so badly she was left with 75 to 100 bruises.
Christopher Lee Rogers allegedly hit a woman with a baseball bat, stomped on her head, cut her neck, hit her with a hammer and tried to choke her with an extension cord in Fergus Falls May 20.

Rogers was charged in Otter Tail County with second-degree attempted murder, second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, false imprisonment and theft of a motor vehicle.
Rogers was arrested Thursday. The maximum penalty for the attempted murder charge is 20 years in prison.
