A Georgia man is being held without bail after he allegedly tortured and raped his wife just two weeks after she gave birth to their son, authorities said.

Aaron Uchitel has been charged with aggravated battery, false imprisonment and cruelty to children, according to Fulton County Jail records. It was not clear whether he had entered a plea.

His wife, Prosper Ortega, has been hospitalized in serious condition after Uchitel stabbed her, beat her, poured scalding water over her ears and tried to gouge out her eyes, according to her family.

Her mother, Fawn Ortega, posted a series of horrific photos showing her daughter's injuries, saying Prosper wanted people to see the results of domestic violence.

"Her ribs are broken. He beat her ribs and breast saying her milk was useless and she was worthless," Fawn Ortega told WXIA-TV. "He tried to blind her so she couldn't see her baby, he tried to make her deaf so she couldn't hear him crying for her."

Prosper Ortega was stabbed in the chest and the leg, her mother said. After she was unable to reach Prosper for several days, she forced her way into her daughter's home to find her being held captive, she said.

"I fought him, I fought, I just went in there and I fought him," she said.

The 23-year-old new mother will need multiple procedures for her injuries and a GoFundMe page has been established to help pay her medical bills.

Prosper had tried to escape by climbing out a window, but Uchitel grabbed her and dragged her back inside, where he tied her to a bed and cut off her hair, her mother said.
