Cecilia Nelson says her 32-year-old boyfriend Isaac Baugh called on his way home to ask if she had made dinner Saturday evening, and she told him she had not. When he arrived home, he reportedly yelled at her to come downstairs and cook him dinner. She came downstairs, and they argued while she was in the kitchen. She says he got up from the dining room table, where he was waiting, and threw a Mentos package at her, hitting her in the head. She demanded he leaves, and as she began to go back upstairs, Baugh grabbed her by the neck and strangled her during an assault. Officers documented injuries on the victim consistent with strangulation.
