A Minden woman was arrested on domestic battery charges after beating her husband on March 5.
Sketea Dyshika Shunta Walker, 36, had gone through her husband’s phone and found conversations he had had with another woman. She confronted him and then began hitting him in the face with her fists. But that was only the beginning.
“[He] told officers he was struck in the head and face repeatedly by Walker with a metal flashlight,” the arrest report stated. “[He] had injuries consistent with his account. [He] told officers he was struck several times with a metal curtain rod. [He] had whelps on his arms consistent with his account. When [he] began packing clothes to leave the residence, [the husband] alleges Walker put them in the bathtub and set them on fire.”
The man left and went to a relative’s house. He then came to the police department to make a report. The man was treated at Minden Medical Center for cuts, scratches, and whelps.
When officers went to the scene of the crime the found “a weight with blood on it, a bent curtain rod, a suicide note, several items of burnt clothes, and items with blood on them.”
Walker turned herself in on March 7, and was charged with domestic battery with a dangerous weapon and severe bodily injury, a felony.
All persons accused of any crime are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
