Officials have spotted a troubling trend in local domestic violence cases: The intensity of beatings suffered by women in abusive relationships is increasing.

"We're seeing more severe beatings, stranglings, attempted strangulations," said Chyrle Nofsinger-Wiens, executive director of the YWCA, which runs the Women's Crisis Center.
