ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Rochester man accused of severely beating his estranged wife with a baseball bat was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison.

Chad Arnold, formerly known as Chad Christensen, pleaded guilty in May to  attempted first-degree premeditated murder.

The charge stemmed from an incident last fall when Christensen allegedly broke into his ex's home and beat her in the head with a baseball bat.

Christensen was also ordered to pay $45,000 in restitution.
