Madison man charged with domestic violence strangulation

— A Limestone County Sheriff’s investigator said he found bruises on a woman who accused her boyfriend of assaulting her in Limestone County.

Chief Investigator Stanley McNatt said the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint about domestic violence on Feb. 24 from a woman who was being treated at Madison Hospital.

“Our deputy went to the hospital to see the victim who said her boyfriend, Raffiel Marcello Cox, 41, of 13606 Hatchett Drive, assaulted her and strangled her,” McNatt said. “The victim got out of the house and went to Madison Hospital, where she received treatment for her injuries and was released.”

Investigator John McCormick obtained an arrest warrant for Cox on Feb. 26 on a charge of domestic violence (strangulation) based on the investigation and the bruises on the victim, McNatt said.
