LOGAN — A 33-year-old Nibley man has been arrested for threatening to kill a woman and her children during a domestic dispute, according to law enforcement. Justin M. Reynolds was booked Wednesday afternoon into the Cache County Jail.
Reynolds was arraigned Friday morning during a virtual hearing in 1st District Court, appearing by web conference from jail. He was charged with aggravated assault, a third-degree felony; and seven misdemeanors.
Cache County Deputy Attorney Andrew Crane explained how Cache County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a Nibley on report of a domestic violence incident. The alleged victim claimed Reynolds had choked and threatened to kill her and the couple’s children.
Crane asked the court to hold Reynolds in jail without bail. He said the suspect had an “extensive drug history.”
Defense attorney Joseph Saxton proposed that Reynolds could be released from jail on pretrial supervision with deputies. He also suggested fitting the Nibley man with an ankle monitor so that he could be tracked.
Judge Spencer Walsh agreed with Crane and refused to grant Reynolds bail. He ordered him to appear again in court May 2.
Reynolds didn’t speak about the charges during the brief arraignment. He could face up to five years in prison, if convicted.
Individuals arrested and charged in complaints are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in court.
