A man from Old Town accused of physical and sexual abuse was formally charged by a Penobscot County grand jury Wednesday.

40-year-old Derrick Barnett was indicted for gross sexual assault and domestic violence assault.

Old Town police say the victim came to them earlier this summer with a black eye and a bite on her nose to report she was physically and sexually assaulted by Barnett.

She told police Barnett threatened to kill her if she spoke to them.

Barnett is also charged with endangering the welfare of a child from a separate incident.
