A Killeen man was arraigned on charges of continuous violence against a family member, resisting arrest and interference with an emergency call.
Jacob Tyler Wilcox, 24, was arrested Wednesday after police were called to his home for the fourth time in 10 months for a domestic violence call. As officers arrived at the home in the 2600 block of Natural Lane, a woman ran out of the home crying with her shirt unbuttoned and bruises on her face and arm, according to the affidavit for arrest.
Wilcox came out of the garage and was detained by officers, according to the affidavit. The woman yelled that he was never going to hit her again, and told officers that it felt like the left side of her jaw was broken, police said.
The woman told officers that Wilcox hit her repeatedly over the past “four or five days” and would not let her leave the home. She was able to alert police by hitting the panic button on the alarm panel. They arrived about an hour later, police said.
On May 3, officers were sent to that same home. The same woman had bruises on her right forearm and cheek, and told officers that Wilcox “just had a PTSD incident,” according to the affidavit.
Police arrived at that same home two other times, once in March and once on Nov. 14, 2016. During the November call, the woman told officers that Wilcox was going to kill her, and also described him as a “decorated war veteran” according to the affidavit.
Wilcox is held in the Bell County Jail on $114,000 total bond.
In an unrelated case, Monty Carl Clift was arraigned on a charge of possession of a controlled substance. He was held in the Bell County Jail on $20,000 bond, but has since bonded out.
