VALPARAISO — A 45-year-old Hebron man is accused of battering a woman and firing a .357 revolver into her room, according to charging documents in the case.

Police said they were called out shortly after 2:30 a.m. Nov. 28 to the 100 block of Poplar Court, where Marini is accused of shooting the gun into a spare bedroom occupied by the woman.

He is further accused of grabbing the woman by her throat and slamming her against a door, and grabbing her by her hair and putting the gun to her head, police said.

Marini is scheduled to make an initial court appearance on the charges Friday before Porter Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Clymer.
