NEW BERLIN, Wis., Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Police say a Milwaukee-area man was allegedly tied up and beaten with a dumbbell by his wife because he wouldn't lower his voice.

Mark Grenader needed eight stitches in his head after his wife, Valentina, allegedly pummeled him because he refused to stop yelling during an argument over his a recent trip to a casino that cost him $800, according to a criminal complaint filed in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel said Tuesday that Valentina allegedly didn't act on impulse. The complaint filed Monday said she flirted with her husband and then tied him to the bedpost for what he thought was going to be a sexual escapade.

She then allegedly wrapped plastic wrap over his face and hit him on the head with the weights.

Valentina Grenader, who faces attempted murder charges, told officers in New Berlin that her husband was a control freak and just wouldn't discuss the casino losses in a normal tone.
