Man accused of threatening to chop off girlfriend’s head
JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Police arrested a 57-year-old Jonesboro man after they say he threatened to chop off his girlfriend’s head during an argument.
According to a probable cause affidavit, officers went to a home on Dalton Farmer Drive on May 15 regarding an “unknown disturbance.”
Upon their arrival, officers spoke with the victim who said she was in an argument with her boyfriend, Stan McDaniel.
The victim had gone to call her mother to ask her to come to get her, but McDaniel then put his hands on the victim’s head and started to squeeze it, the affidavit stated.
“The victim asked her mother to call the police and McDaniel stated that if she does, then he will chop the victim’s head off,” the court document said.
The victim told officers she was in fear of McDaniel seriously hurting her because she said he had “broken her nose in the past”.
On Monday, McDaniel appeared before Craighead County District Judge Tommy Fowler who found probable cause to charge him with first-degree terroristic threatening and third-degree assault on a family or household member.
Fowler set his bond at $35,000 and ordered McDaniel to have no contact with the victim.
