Man Busted for Choking Wife During Fight, Cops Say

Matthew Morris faces an aggravated domestic battery charge, Joliet Lt. Robert Desiderio said.

A Joliet man who choked his wife when a fight escalated into violence has been charged with aggravated domestic battery, Joliet police say.

Police were called to the woman's Joliet home at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday and arrested Matthew J. Morris, 23, who gives addresses of both 358 N. Broadway, Joliet, and 1715 Chicago Ave., Evanston, Joliet Lt. Robert Desiderio said.

The woman did not lose consciousness during the fight and she did not require medical treatment, Desiderio said.

While typically domestic battery cases -- even when the victim is slapped or punched -- result in misdemeanor charges, police are allowed to escalate the charge to felony aggravated battery when choking is involved, Desiderio said.

Morris is being held at the Will County jail in lieu of $3,500 bond. The arrest was his second for domestic battery in the last two years, jail records show.
