The case of a Pomeroy man accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend will apparently end today with a change of plea.

A hearing is scheduled for this afternoon in the case of Joseph King, 24.

He will appear before Judge Michael Ward at 1:30 p.m.

Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly says the kidnapping was reported in Chauncey last May.

Tiffany Rutter, 20, of Buchtel told deputies that King had physically assaulted her and left her in the road.

Sheriff Kelly says she was taken to the hospital for treatment.
