Adam Michael Capriglione, 29, of south St. Louis County, has been charged with 19 felony counts and is jailed with bond set at US$500,000 (S$626,710), said Edward Magee, a spokesman for the St. Louis County prosecutor's office.
One woman was allegedly choked to the point of unconsciousness, burned with heated scissors, beaten with a rubber mallet and burned inside her vagina with the heated handle of a can opener, according to charging documents.
The events took place between 2007 and January 2014, and included women who had been in romantic relationships with Capriglione, according to court documents.
