MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Newaygo County man already facing a lengthy prison sentence for beating his wife is facing and additional 19 to 55 years for similar charges in Muskegon County.
In January, Robert Hornof, 27, pleaded no contest to charges of assault with intent to murder in connection with an attack on his wife, Lola. Last year, he entered the same plea to the same charge in Newaygo County.
In February 2011, Hornof bound and beat his wife Lola at their Newaygo County mobile home, thinking she was having an affair. He forced his wife into his car while he drove in search of the man he suspected of being involved with her.
Lola Hornof managed to escape from the car and sought shelter at a Holton convenience store. Prosecutors say Hornof tried to pull his wife out of the store, then tried running her over. Hornof was arrested after wrecking his car.
