36-year-old James Shepherd was booked on February 4th after strangling his ex-girlfriend during an argument. Alexus Schultz stated that James would show up at her job leading up to the incident, which made her very uncomfortable. She said that James would also call her derogatory names during arguments. On the day of the assault, January 29th, Alexus was planning to tell him that she didn’t want to communicate with him any longer. They began to argue, causing James to become irate and verbally aggressive. During the argument, James slammed Alexus’ finger in the door and then strangled her, leaving scratch marks on her neck. James told Alexus that he did not strangle her and that if she told anyone that he did, he would call the police on her.
