Court filing claimed Mills forced the woman and child inside a bedroom closet where he threatened to kill the woman with whom police claim he had an ongoing relationship.
Additionally, police claim Mills tried to choke the victim with his hands and, later, with a T-shirt. He then, according to court documents, went to turn on the stove and plug in an iron with the intent of burning his girlfriend. She then ran from the home.
He was also arrested on child abuse charges but a grand jury determined there was not sufficient evidence to take Mills to trial on that charge.
Mills asked Circuit Judge Larry Anderson to give him probation. A hearing on that matter has been scheduled for April.
Mills was also ordered to pay a $1,500 fine, $500 to the Victim’s Compensation Fund, and $2,500 in attorney’s fees.
