Billy Bolin (mug shot SCSO)

A man from Blue Eye was charged with domestic assault after he allegedly choked his wife with an electrical cord.

Authorities say Billy Bolin, 32, hit the woman with a "semi-closed fist, stood on her neck with his knee and punched her in the ribs." Court records say he also pushed his thumb into the woman's eye and kicked her numerous times.

The woman told law enforcers that Bolin threatened to "come back and kill her and her family by burning them alive."

Bolin's preliminary hearing has been scheduled for February 19th.
