An Iowa City woman was charged Tuesday with second-offense domestic-abuse assault after she allegedly bit her girlfriend and covered her face with a pillow.

According to a complaint by Iowa City police, officers were called to the residence of Stacey Kiest, 27, 1131 Third Ave. Apt. 7, for a welfare check. Upon their arrival, they spoke with the victim, who stated Kiest had allegedly given her unwanted marks on her neck and had bit her right shoulder, the complaint said.

The complaint also said the victim stated Kiest had allegedly covered her face with a pillow. The officers observed two red marks on the victim's neck, as well as bruising on her left forearm and right lower leg, according to the complaint.

The complaint said Kiest denied a physical altercation between the two women.

Second-offense domestic-abuse assault is an aggravated misdemeanor.
