18-year-old Donte Wilson was jailed for strangling his girlfriend at her home on Lincoya Bay Drive. On December 7th, officers responded to a caller stating that her friend, Taylor Sheffield, was just assaulted by her boyfriend. Taylor explained that she had been letting her boyfriend stay with her temporarily and that they had been arguing throughout the day. The argument escalated when they began insulting each other’s family members, and Wilson grabbed Taylor by the head with both hands and threw her backward onto the bed. Taylor stated that when she landed on her back, Wilson got on top of her and began strangling her while she tried to push him off. The police observed that the blankets on the bed were disheveled, and the room presented signs of an altercation. Wilson had fled the scene before the police arrived but was later booked into the Montgomery County Jail on December 13th.
