A Carpentersville man has been sentenced to five years in prison for beating and severely injuring his then girlfriend in June 2012, according to the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Tyrell D. Sumling, 24, most recently of the 2000 block of Berkshire Circle, agreed on Monday to a five-year prison sentence in exchange for a guilty plea of one felony count of aggravated domestic battery.

Police said Sumling and the woman began to argue on June 19, 2012, in an East Dundee home before he punched her in the abdomen, rupturing her spleen, according to a press release. The victim’s spleen was removed as a result of the rupture.

Sumling has been convicted of domestic battery on at least three previous occasions stemming from incidents in 2008, 2010 and 2011, the news release states.

According to state law, he must serve at least 85 percent of the sentence.

He was given credit for at least 448 days served in the Kane County Jail, where he had been held since his arrest on a $750,000 bond.
