The neighbor of a Boone County woman, who deputies say was raped and beaten by her estranged husband, is speaking out.
Boone County deputies arrested 61 year old Barry Clark.
They say Monday night around 9 o'clock on Rattlesnake Hollow in Morrisvale, Clark held his estranged wife and 4 others hostage at gunpoint. We're told he raped and beat his soon to be ex and then forced the others to set fire to the home. When the alleged victim tried to escape deputies say two of her neighbors beat her up.
