A judge decided the kidnapping and assault case against a Nashville music producer will move forward and was bound over to a grand jury.
The victim, who appeared in a Nashville courtroom Tuesday morning, had obvious and severe bruising all over her body, including her face.
With the help of a translator, the woman told the court Bobby Shin held her hostage at his Joelton home for six days beginning on Christmas Eve.
According to the victim, the abuse started when Shin got angry at her for smoking an e-cigarette.
She claims Shin threw her on the ground, punched and kicked her several times and beat her with a vacuum and strangled her with the cord.
Shin is also accused of splashing scalding hot water on the woman’s open cuts.
The victim said while she was being held against her will, Shin reportedly forced her to perform tasks and would drag her around the home.
The woman was able to escape the home and call for help on Dec. 30.
Shin is charged with kidnapping and sexual battery. He remains jailed.
According to his website, Shin owns The Library Studios, a music production site.
He’s worked with a number of artists including Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton and Kacey Musgraves, according to his website.
Shin has worked with a number of Christian music artists as well including Michael W. Smith and Casting Crowns. Reps for both previously said that while they have worked with him, they have no direct connection to Shin.
