The Smoking Gun gets the gruesome details:

Police allege that [Trevor] Case stuffed "hospital socks" into Danielle Stallworth's mouth and bound her wrists with belts and hair ties before placing a shirt over her head and dousing it with water, according to a Lincoln Police Department report. “He poured a pitcher of water on her head, and she started freaking out and thought she wasn’t able to breathe,” cops noted. The waterboarding practice, of course, leaves victims with the sensation that they are drowning.

One wonders how the New York Times would report this story. Enhanced domestic violence?
