ADA, OK--A Pontotoc County man accused of kidnapping and assaulting his ex-fiancee was back in court Wednesday. Ramey Reamy, 23, waived his rights to a preliminary hearing. We spoke with both families involved, and right now they're each blaming the other.

"My best word for it is hell. That was my epitome of hell," said 23-year-old Brittni Etier.

Etier says on the night of Aug. 25, 2013, she was kidnapped by her ex-fiancee--23-year-old Ramey Reamy. Etier says they had been broken up for several months, and in an effort to reconcile, she texted him to hang out.

"Whenever he showed up, he was just freaking out," she said. "I thought maybe he had gotten into some trouble."

She says Reamy then shoved her into the floorboard of his car, repeatedly slammed her head against the windshield and drove to his grandmother's house on County Road 3510. 

After two hours inside the house, Etier says she texted her sister and was saved by a swat team. Now six months later, Reamy's trial is inching closer.

In Wednesday's 2 o'clock hearing, Reamy waived his right to a preliminary hearing, which will put him back in court in April. We talked with Etier and Reamy's aunt. Right now, both parties say the other is guilty.

Shelley Bridgeman, Reamy's aunt, said: "I know it's not true. I've seen her beat the crap out of him, and him just stand there and take it. And he was raised not to hit a woman."

Etier said, "It's been hard, because a lot of people in this town have thought that I lied about it."

Reamy's family says they want justice to be served.

"Just hoping through all of this that the truth will come out," said Bridgeman. "And the truth is he did not kidnap her."

Etier says despite everything, she hopes the best for him.

"I just can't change what's already been done," she said. "If I could, I would, but I cant."

Etier says Reamy has since apologized to her, and claims he has no recollection of the incident due to drug use. If he's convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison.
