YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — An Austintown faces felonious assault and domestic violence charges for what police said was an attack on his girlfriend.
James Kennedy, 33, of Weston Avenue in Austintown, was indicted Thursday by a Mahoning County grand jury on two counts of felonious assault, felony domestic violence and violation of a protection order.
That incident happened just before Kennedy was to begin serving a five-day jail sentence on an unrelated matter. Reports said he punched and choked his girlfriend.
Kennedy has been in the county jail since his arrest in that case.
