Talala Man Faces Felony Domestic Abuse Charge


 A Talala man faces a charge of domestic assault for a weekend incident.

 40-year-old Steven James Trujillo is facing charges in Washington County Court for domestic assault and battery by strangulation and domestic abuse in presence of a minor.

 Court documents say Trujillo became angry with the victim. When the victim gathered four children in the home to take them to a relative’s house,  Trujillo came toward the victim with a baseball bat. The victim was not hit with the bat. They did, however, end up on a gravel driveway while Trujillo choked them, saying they would be killed.

 Officers noted a busted lip, red marks around the throat, with scraped knees and legs. The victim says Trujillo assaulted them a few weeks prior to the incident.

 Trujillo is being held on $15,000 bond; his next court date is scheduled for August 11th.
