JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A judge found probable cause Tuesday to charge a Brookland woman with felony domestic battery after investigators said she ignored a no-contact order and, for the second time in two months, attacked another woman.

Deborah Lynn Nolen, 62, sporting two black eyes, appeared in video court before Craighead County District Judge David Boling.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Jonesboro police were called to Wakefield Drive on Monday regarding a domestic disturbance. When officers arrived they found the victim with “swelling and redness on both sides of her face.”

The victim told investigators Nolen was “intoxicated and started a fight with her as soon as she [the victim] got home.” The woman claimed Nolen slapped her in the face then choked her.

According to court documents filed by Detective Nathan Coleman, Nolen was arrested for a similar offense with the same victim on March 30. At that time, a no-contact order was issued.

Coleman stated Nolen violated the terms of the no-contact order by consuming alcoholic beverages and by being at the incident location.

Coleman also alleged that, based on dispatch call logs, Nolen violated the terms of the no-contact order on April 30 and twice on May 2 and 3.

After reviewing the documents and Nolen’s recent arrests, Judge Boling found probable cause to charge her with third-degree domestic battering, a Class D felony. If convicted she could be sentenced up to 6 years in prison and fined as much as $10,000.

She was also cited with violation of a no-contact order, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and fine not to exceed $2,500.

Boling set her bond at $45,000 cash/surety and ordered her to appear in circuit court on June 29.
