Man Attacks Wife in Hospital Bed, Joliet Police Say

Davaughn Ervin was charged with felony aggravated battery for choking his wife and knocking a phone away so she couldn't call for help, Cmdr. Al Roechner said.

A Joliet man who jumped on his hospitalized wife and attempted to strangle her was arrested Saturday night and charged with aggravated domestic battery, according to Joliet police.

Davaughn Lydell Ervin, 27, was reportedly intoxicated when he went to his wife's room at Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet at about 6:45 p.m. and began screaming at her, Cmdr. Al Roechner said. He then jumped onto her bed and used his hands to ring her neck, he said.

The woman screamed for help and tried to reach for the phone, but Ervin knocked it to the floor and then fled before anyone could stop him, Roechner said.

Police interviewed the woman at the hospital and then went to the couple's house at 270 SE Frontage Road, where Ervin was taken into the custody, he said. In addition to aggravated battery, he also faces a charge of interfering with the reporting of domestic violence.

Ervin is being held in the Will County jail in lieu of $5,000 bond. According to jail records, Ervin was arrested and charged with domestic battery from a March 2012 incident.

You're an idiot he has been this way for years and he is just getting worse!!! He tried to kill you!!!! You need to know you will never change him!! No matter how many times you try to spin it in your head he will just keep getting worse! He is killing himself everytime he picks up that bottle! You know this he knows this. And so do his last 2 girlfriends! Your biggest mistake was you married him. His boys are never going to have a father in their lives and as much shit as he talks he does not care enough to change it! I personally have seen his downward spiral and he never once has progressed! Leave him in jail do not bail his dumbass out. This is your opportunity to get away from him. You will find someone who will treat you right and love and he is not that person and he doesn't love you if he tries to kill you!

Not too smart are you? I've been sober 10 years and have been in the program over 20. A wife/girlfriend cannot be his sponsor, if you are you are a big part of his problem. Continue enabling him and you will be partly responsible for his early death. You are now sicker than him and you are now in biggest need of help.
