Man accused of beating two people with baseball bat in court, bond set

FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WKRG) - A man accused of attacking two people with a baseball bat appeared in a Baldwin County court Wednesday afternoon. Ledarrius Sigler is also accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and a young child. 

Sigler was taken into custody after an extended vehicle and foot chase Tuesday, September 11, 2018. He's charged with kidnapping and assault. 

In court, prosecutors outlined their case. They say Sigler broke into his ex-girlfriends home. They say he beat his ex-girlfriend's uncle with a baseball bat. He is still in ICU.

They accuse Sigler of then kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and a young child, and beating his ex-girlfriend with a baseball bat.

"The child was carried along throughout the process and was exposed to the whole entirety of the event," said Major Anthony Lowery with the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office. 

During his hearing, Sigler defended himself to the judge, saying that he was assaulted and he didn’t assault anyone. 

Sources tell News 5 they were surprised this wasn’t a double homicide because of the extent of the victims’ injuries. 

"You've seen people get hit in the head with far less than a baseball bat and die. This was still very serious," said Lowery.

Sigler remains in jail on a $185,000 bond.
