Essex County prosecutors say 32-year-old Trevor Rodrigues of East Orange must serve more than 13 years of the term imposed Wednesday before he becomes eligible for parole. A jury had convicted him last month on numerous charges, including aggravated assault, terroristic threats and weapons offenses.

Prosecutors say the charges stemmed from repeated abuse that occurred during a 25-day span from December 2010 to January 2011.

They say Rodrigues would often brutally beat his 31-year-old wife with the cable wire when he became annoyed over minor things such as a child crying.
