Bail set at $300,000 for Fargo man accused of brutally beating ex-girlfriend

FARGO – Bail was set at $300,000 on Wednesday for a Fargo man charged with attempted murder in the brutal beating of his ex-girlfriend in Clay County.

Mason William Seaborn is charged with attempted murder, kidnapping, first-degree assault and domestic assault by strangulation in Clay County District Court.

Judge Steven Cahill set bail at $300,000 cash or bond, following the recommendation of Assistant County Attorney Lori Conroy, who called the nature of the offenses “very serious.”

Seaborn allegedly beat his ex-girlfriend with a metal jack handle, choked her and threatened to kill her if she went to police, according to court documents.

His next court appearance was set for Oct. 10 in domestic violence court.
