        Dorothy Butcher says she's been living the last few days in fear for her life, since her ex-boyfriend Harold Stevens was released on bail, after she alleges he kidnapped and abused her.

        Butcher spoke to ABC 36 on Thursday from her home where she says Stevens locked her and abused her sexually after the two got into an argument back on September 6th.

        Butcher says she was talking to her neighbor outside her home, when Stevens became enraged, accusing her of kissing and touching the neighbor.

        She says Stevens began getting physical, grabbing her by the hair and abusing her sexually.

        After a while, Butcher says she acted like she was dead, and then heard Stevens try to call his son to help him hide Butcher's body. That's when she was able to find a phone an dial 9-1-1.

        The Harrison County Sheriff's office arrested Stevens a short while later and charged him with first degree sexual abuse, second degree unlawful imprisonment, third degree terroristic threatening and fourth degree assault.

        Stevens was released from the Bourbon County Jail on Tuesday on a $5,000 bond.

        Butcher says she's afraid Stevens will come back and kill her, and says she's getting ready to go into hiding.
