St. Charles Man Repeatedly Zaps Wife With Stun Gun Because He Can't Find Wallet: Cops

Brian David O'Neill's wife sleeps in a separate room from her husband because she fears he will kill her in her sleep.

The St. Charles woman reportedly told police this troubling fact after they were called to respond to a recent domestic violence incident.

In this case, police say the 25-year-old man repeatedly zapped his wife with a stun gun -- because he couldn't find his wallet.

The man is now facing felony charges of second-degree domestic assault and armed criminal action along with misdemeanor charges of unlawful use of drug paraphernalia and property damage, court records show.

O'Neill lives on the 800 block of North Sixth Street, the Post-Dispatch reports.

The paper reports that he attacked his wife at a relative's home on Blanchette Drive earlier this month -- with a Concorde Defender 3.8 million volt model stun gun. He allegedly used it on his wife's neck and then when she recovered and tried to escape, he used it again on her abdomen and thighs while pinning her to the ground, according to police. During the attack, he allegedly damaged a chair and room divider.

O'Neill was on parole for a drug violation at the time and is now behind bars with a bail set at $35,000.

Daily RFT left a message for his attorney today and will update if we hear back.

Court records show he has a case review scheduled for tomorrow and that a judge recently denied a motion to reconsider the bond.

If he's not sterile already (by the grace of God), I have a couple of targets for the next time he wants to use the stun gun...

well, hell the dumb girl shouldn't be with the guy..some girls these days kill me.. if i had to sleep in another room cause i feared my significant other would kill me in my sleep or was abusive in any way possible i would probably not be with someone like that... if anything she needs to learn some self defense and zap his balls repeatedly when he gets out of jail! Pshhh i know i would not stand for something like that.

Her lawyer needs to continually zap his bank account! Oh wait. He probably doesn't even have a bank account.

Good lord, "...because she fears he will kill him in his sleep."  How about we check what we write before posting it, folks. She fears he will kill HER in HER sleep.

@Chrissy Scott its extremely hard to get away from an abusive relationship, most of the time takes years and by that time the damage to the woman is already done where she wont feel right without it...sad but true

@Chrissy Scott true, but who's to say he won't kill her for leaving also? It happens all the time. Once you're with a psycho like this, it is very tricky to get rid of him.
