Miami man pleads guilty to gouging wife's eyes

MIAMI (AP) - A man, who gouged out his eyes while in Miami-Dade County jail, was sentenced to 25 years in prison for gouging his wife's eyes after he was released.

Eugene Roman pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated battery and kidnapping charges in the May 2006 attack. Roman's estranged wife was left blind in her right eye and partially blind in her left.

Roman also was sentenced to 10 years probation. The 50-year-old cried in court Monday and asked for forgiveness.

His wife told The Miami Herald that she wanted him kept away from her and her children.

Roman gouged out his eyes while serving a 364-day sentence for attacking his wife and police officers inside the couple's home in 2005. He was released early when his wife agreed to take him back.
