BOZEMAN - A Wyoming fugitive appeared in a Gallatin County Courtroom today accused of assaulting a pregnant woman.
Eric Pierce, 20, was arrested on a warrant out of Laramie County, Wyoming.
He faces charges of strangulation of a household member and aggravated assault and battery against a pregnant woman.
The charges date back to Dec. 1, 2012.
Gallatin County Judge John Brown set Pierce's bail at $25,000 after he decided not to waive extradition back to Wyoming.
A status hearing is scheduled in three weeks.
