WARSAW — Maria Fabiola Marquez, 32, 1202 Wooster Road, Winona Lake, is being charged with domestic battery with a child under age 16 present, a level 6 felony and domestic battery, a class A misdemeanor.
On Thursday, June 23, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department responded to a domestic abuse complaint. Marquez was picking up her two children from her husband’s residence. The two are still married at this time but in the process of getting a divorce.
While Marquez was standing at the front door, her husband began to shut the door. According to the affidavit of probable cause, Marquez stated she “threw up her arm striking [her husband] and causing a 2 1/2 inch bleeding scratch on his left arm.” According to the husband, Marquez came through the front door uninvited, causing the scratch on his arm.
The husband also provided video to the officer showing Marquez hitting him as she exited the residence. During the time of the incident both of the children were inside the residence. There’s currently a protective order in place that prevents the husband from having any contact with Marquez.
Marquez is being held on a $6,000 surety and cash bond.
