A 35 year-old Texhoma man is in the Texas County jail following a domestic dispute that took place early Monday morning on Texas Street in Texhoma.
Julian Licon was arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic assault and battery after he allegedly attacked his ex-wife and her boyfriend with a claw hammer.
According to an affidavit of probable cause, Texhoma police chief David Butler was dispatched to an address on West Texas Street in Texhoma at 12:34 a.m. Monday. Upon arrival he found a female identified as Licon�??s ex-wife, and a male subject identified as Jamie Solis. Solis had blood on his arms and shirt.
The ex-wife stated she and Solis had been assaulted by Licon, who left in a green Cadillac.
Goodwell police stopped the vehicle on Highway 54, assisted by the Texas County Sheriff�??s Department. When Butler arrived, he noticed Licon had a bloody nose.
Licon stated he had been in a fight with his wife and her boyfriend in Texhoma, and later said he remembered going to the house in Texhoma, but didn�??t remember anything after that until he was stopped by the Goodwell police.
According to statements from the victims, Licon punched Solis when he answered the door, then entered the residence holding a claw hammer, saying, �??I will kill both of you.�?� The fight continued outside where Licon put Solis in a headlock. Solis responded by head-butting Licon, who dropped the hammer and left.
The assault with a deadly weapon charge is a felony, which is punishable by imprisonment for up to 10 years or up to one year in the county jail, according to the affidavit. The domestic assault charge is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment of up to a year, a $5,000 fine, or both.
Licon had previously been convicted of domestic assault and battery in 2006 and spent 30 days in the Texas County jail.
