By Ray King

A $25,000 bond was set Wednesday for a White Hall man who allegedly hit his wife causing injuries on Monday.


Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Julius Johnson, 44, with second offense third-degree domestic battery, a felony.

Reading from a probable cause affidavit from Detective Keith Banks, Deputy Prosecutor Mircha King told the court what Johnson was accused of doing.


King said Johnson has been convicted of several prior felonies between 1996 and 2018 including second-degree murder in 2008. He is currently on parole and the department of community corrections has placed a parole hold on him.

Johnson was ordered to have no contact with the victim and told to come back to court Feb. 24.
