(WSAZ) — Police say what happened down Miller Hollow Road in Jackson County for 10 years is horrendous.
"This is a case that is tenfold of what our average domestic is and maybe more than that. It comes down to what appears to be slavery and torture, it seems to be the aspects of this case," Jackson County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Tony Boggs said.
Peter Lizon was arrested on malicious wounding charges; he may face more as the investigation unfolds.

Sheriff’s deputies say it all began when Lizon's wife showed up at a crisis center in Parkersburg, W.Va.
They say she had scars on her wrists and ankles because she was chained up with metal padlocks, and her feet were badly mutilated because Lizon allegedly smashed them with a scoop on a farm tractor.
