Oprah to feature Wisconsin woman who survived attack

Posted: Updated:

RACINE (AP) -- A Wisconsin woman who survived a brutal attack by her ex-husband is sharing her story with Oprah Winfrey.

Teri Jendusa-Nicolai nearly died in January 2004. Her ex-husband was convicted of beating her in the head with a baseball bat, then binding her with tape and stuffing her into a garbage can in an unheated storage locker.

Since then, the Wind Lake woman has become an outspoken advocate for women's safety.

Oprah's staff invited her last month to be part of an upcoming show on trusting one's intuition. She agreed, and sat for a taping earlier this month. She was joined by the two Racine County sheriff's investigators who worked on her case.

The air date hasn't been set, but it should run this month.
