LAKE ANDES — Two cases filed against a Wagner man in August have been dismissed.

All charges against 37-year-old Michael Guerue, who was originally charged with holding a woman captive in a house for several hours while raping her and beating her with a baseball bat, were dropped last month.

Dismissal documents do not specify why charges were dropped, and Charles Mix County State's Attorney Steve Cotton has not responded to messages from The Daily Republic.

Charges dismissed include first-degree kidnapping, second-degree rape, aggravated assault and resisting arrest. First-degree kidnapping is a Class C felony punishable upon conviction by up to life in prison.
