Gage Ford

Gage Ford, 23, of Muskogee, who was convicted late last month in Norman of viciously beating his then-pregnant girlfriend to the point that doctors didn’t know if she would survive, was charged yesterday in Muskogee County District Court with beating another girlfriend here — who also was pregnant at the time — while on bond in the case in which he was convicted.

In the case filed yesterday, Ford is alleged to have bashed a Muskogee woman’s head against a car window, then tackled her to the ground in October of last year. The victim was pregnant at the time.

Ford is currently awaiting placement in an Oklahoma prison, so any trial stemming from the new charges would have to take place in coordination with whatever prison Ford ends up in from his Norman conviction.
