An area man found himself in jail on his wedding day after he allegedly broke his mother’s jaw.
Cory McGee, 20, was arrested on Feb. 15 at residence on Wiley Road after deputies with the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office responded to a disturbance call.
Allegedly McGee and his wife got into an argument after she told him she thought getting married was a mistake. McGee’s mother tried to intervene, and he kneed her in the jaw, breaking it.
He was arrested and charged with domestic violence-aggravated assault.
This is the latest in a string of domestic violence charges for McGee. He has been convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence on two previous occasions, and before last Wednesday’s incident he was indicted on a third domestic violence charge.
He is being held without bond.
