BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma - Bartlesville Police arrested a man they say beat his wife using a laptop computer, hair brush, umbrella, hair driver and metal kitty litter pan, court documents show.

Ricky Nolan Ennis, 21, was booked on complaints of felony domestic abuse in the presence of a minor child, kidnapping, threats to kill and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Court records show the wife was severely bruised with a black and swollen eye and a dent in her forehead from the kitty litter tin. She had badly bruised hands where she said her husband stomped on them while she lay on the ground and "six different human bite marks on various places on the victim's body," according to an affidavit of probable cause.

The woman told officers that Ennis beat her over two days, keeping her trapped in their bedroom and at times in the basement of his parents' house. She also said he headbutted her while she held their child, causing the baby some bruising when the woman's head hit the 9 month old's left eye.

The officer said he went to the residence where the abuse allegedly took place, in the 1900 block of South Johnstone. Ennis' mother let officers into the home, according to court records. When one of the officers opened a closet door to search for Ennis, they say a rifle fell out of the closet.

Ennis is a convicted felon and should not have access to a firearm, the affidavit states. He has been convicted of burglary and domestic abuse in the past.
