— A husband who called police to report he was hitting his wife and the man he found in bed with her has pleaded not guilty to two felony battery charges and misdemeanor criminal trespass.

The wife needed seven stitches in her head and police found the bloody and beaten man naked in a laundry room, covered only with a blanket, according to a Walworth County criminal complaint.


Edgar Urias, 26, of Delavan could be sentenced to a maximum of seven years in prison on the felony charges. Urias is free on $1,000 bail but is scheduled to appear before Walworth County Judge Robert Kennedy for a hearing Feb. 16.


The incident happed Nov. 20 when Urias entered the woman’s Delavan home and attacked the couple, according to the complaint.


In a conversation with a police officer, Urias stated he had caught the couple in bed and asked, “What would you have done?” The woman does not have the same last name as Urias. There is no record of a divorce in Wisconsin between Urias and the woman.


The other man said he thought Urias and the woman were no longer together. He said he heard the defendant break into the apartment.


Police later learned that the other man went to a hospital and received 12 staples for head wounds, suffered a concussion, sore ribs and a dislocated finger.
