David Edward Benes, 54, is accused of imprisoning his 80-year-old girlfriend in their Holiday, FL., home Sept 16 and 17 while trying to perform a drunken, violent two day exorcism on her, according to a police report. This is not the first time he’s run afoul of the law for drinking and violence.
The couple has lived together for three years, the report said.
