(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A Rochester man who attacked his estranged wife, nearly killing her with a baseball bat, is now sentenced.
 
Chad Christensen, who changed his last name to Arnold, was found to have forced his way into the woman's home, beating her with a baseball bat, strangling her, and holding her captive.
 
This happened last fall.
 
A judge sentenced him to 15 years in prison on Monday. He's also ordered to pay more than $45,000 in restitution.  Money that will come from his wages while in prison.
