After they arrived on the scene, deputies determined that Brandon James Moore, 36, of Oxford, was the aggressor and he was arrested.  

Deputies investigated the victim’s injuries and discovered she had bruising around her neck from where Moore had choked her. A domestic violence charge becomes a felony when a weapon or strangulation is used during the assault.

Moore was then transported to the Lafayette County Detention Center and charged with Domestic Violence Aggravated Assault.

Lafayette County Justice Court judge set Moore’s bond at $7,500.
