MESERVEY, Iowa (AP) - A northern Iowa man accused of kidnapping and torturing his girlfriend is facing an explosives charge.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2t0csnJ ) that 41-year-old Charles Albright is charged with unauthorized possession of offensive weapons, a felony. A court filing says Albright broke Iowa law in Cerro Gordo County by possessing “a bomb, explosive or combination of such parts comprising an offensive weapon.”

Albright is scheduled to go on trial July 11 on kidnapping and willful injury charges in Franklin County. Court records say he held his girlfriend for 12 to 14 hours on Oct. 7 in Meservey (meh-ZUR’-vee), where she was punched, slammed against a floor, shocked with a stun gun and bitten by a dog.

She told officers Albright then took her to Sheffield and continued attacking her.
