Laurel man behind bars for attacking wife

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Jones County Sheriff's Department. 

On Monday, Jones County deputies were dispatched to a suspected assault between a husband and wife. 

Upon arrival, deputies found the victim and Charles Walker, 47 of Laurel, at the home. 

After an on-site investigation, Walker was taken into custody and transported to the Jones County Adult Detention Center.

The victim reported the two had become involved in a heated argument that led to physical violence when she requested he let the dog out early that morning.

Walker became enraged and began attacking the victim by slapping her on the face, then dragging her out of the bed by her hair into the kitchen. 

He then began to punch her in the face, and choke her. 

He later hit her in the mouth with a folding chair. 

The attack left bruising and lacerations to the victim’s face and neck, still evident almost 24 hours later.

Walker appeared before Judge Billie Graham at Jones County Justice Court and received a $5,000 bond.
