State police say a Martinsburg man has been charged with beating a 74-year-old woman, kidnapping her and forcing her to transfer money out of her bank accounts.

According to a criminal complaint in Berkeley County Magistrate Court, 49-year-old Alvaro A. Vilela is accused of beating Carol Dyall at her home and taking her to his residence, where she remained for several days. After friends began getting phone calls and emails from Dyall, state police tracked the calls to Vilela's residence.

Vilela was charged Wednesday with kidnapping, unlawful restraint, extortion, and violent crimes and financial exploitation of the elderly. He's being held at the Eastern Regional Jail

Trooper C.J. Hill in Charles Town says Dyall was hospitalized for arm and leg bruises and at least one broken bone.
