Benton Harbor man to be tried for allegedly assaulting an ex-girlfriend


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A jury has been seated and testimony begins today in the trial of a Benton Harbor man who is charged with raping, beating and terrorizing an ex-girlfriend.

Deputies say Danny Vinson and Curtis Hankton forced their way into her place at Big Bend Apartments early on the morning of January 22nd wielding a shotgun.

She was sexually assaulted, beaten and forced into their car, and later dropped off at a hospital in Waterviliet.

Vinson is charged with 6 felonies including rape, assault and home invasion.

Hankton pled guilty to armed robbery and a gun charge last week and may turn up on the prosecution’s witness list.
