(Richmond, IN)--An affidavit has revealed more on the strangulation and battery arrest of a Richmond artist.  37-year-old Charles Guess was still in the Wayne County Jail Friday morning.  That affidavit indicates that Guess attacked his long-time girlfriend in December after she saw him at the Richmond Mall with another woman.  During that attack on North 16th, Guess first beat the victim, then held a gun to the victim’s head and then forced her to put the gun in her mouth as he threatened to kill her.  Investigators attempted to interview Guess.  Then, more recently, Guess made multiple threats to kill the victim as the investigation proceeded.  She secretly recorded all those threats and turned them over to police.  Guess is known in Richmond for several paintings he has done.
