Local man indicted, accused of assaulting wife

By Sally Voth -- svoth@nvdaily.com

WOODSTOCK -- A Woodstock man has been indicted by a Shenandoah County grand jury on a charge that he assaulted his wife.

Jaime Amado Sanchez, also known as Jesus Acevedo-Molina, 34, of 110 Pleasant Lane, Apt. 11, was indicted Nov. 30 on a charge of unlawful wounding, according Shenandoah County Circuit Court records.

As part of a plea agreement, the charge was amended from malicious wounding, and he was sentenced to two years in prison with all but 60 days suspended.

He faces deportation upon his release.

In a criminal complaint, Woodstock Police Officer Brian Miller said he responded to Sanchez's home on Sept. 30 after someone called 911 and hung up.

It says Sanchez told the officer nothing was wrong, but he could see a woman and child crying in the living room.

The woman, Sanchez's wife, had a bruised and swollen forehead, cheek and ear, the complaint says. She told the officer her husband -- whom she'd told several weeks earlier she didn't want to be with anymore -- had pulled her out of bed by her hair as she was sleeping, thrown her on the floor, kicked her in the head about six times and punched her in the head.

The woman, who told rescue personnel she'd lost consciousness, was taken to Shenandoah Memorial Hospital, according to the complaint.

Other grand jury indictments include:

• Kelly Lee Shafer, age unavailable, of 10685 Old Valley Pike, Mt. Jackson, on charges of trespassing and petty larceny.

• Richard Vance Jones Jr., 52, of 12320 Back Road, Toms Brook, on a charge of possession of a firearm after having been convicted of a felony.

• Matthew Allan Garcia, 23, of 132 Shenell Drive, Mt. Jackson, on charges of distribution of between a half-ounce and 5 pounds of marijuana, two counts of selling a firearm to a convicted felon and possession with the intent to sell stolen property.

• Todd Earl Webb, 19, of 1919 Ridge Road, New Market, on charges of burglary, two counts of selling a firearm to a convicted felon, larceny of a firearm, possession with the intent to distribute stolen property and distribution of a half-ounce to 5 pounds of marijuana.
