W.Va. woman says prosecutors pushing abuse charges against her husband over her objections

A West Virginia woman whose husband is accused of torturing her for years says the charges are exaggerated and that prosecutors are pushing the case over her objections.

In an interview with The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/107fgfl ) published Friday, Stephanie Lizon claims Jackson County prosecutors are threatening to take her son away from her if she doesn't testify against her husband, Peter Lizon.

Jackson County Prosecutor Kenny Skeen didn't immediately return a telephone call from The Associated Press on Friday. Stephanie Lizon did not answer her telephone.

Last July, she fled from her husband, and a criminal complaint said she claimed he locked her up and beat her for years.

Peter Lizon was charged with malicious wounding but wasn't indicted. Stephanie Lizon denied the allegations in court.
