Man charged with domestic battery, strangulation

From Local Sources


JASPER — The Jasper Police Department took a man into custody overnight on a Dubois Circuit Court warrant charging him with felony domestic battery and strangulation.

The charges against Jose R. Martinez, 25, 505 W. Village Court, Jasper, stem from a Friday night report of a physical domestic. A female complainant who had visible injury told a Jasper Police Department officer that Martinez had struck and choked her. Children were present at the time, according to charging information.

Police were unable to locate Martinez the night of the incident.

A warrant charging Martinez with Level 6 felony counts of domestic battery and strangulation was issued Monday. Authorities booked Martinez into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:16 a.m. today on the active warrant.
