Man arrested after strangling wife to death in home on Castle Hill Drive
BATON ROUGE- East Baton Rouge Sheriff's detectives arrested a man on Monday after he admitted to strangling his wife to death.
Deputies responded to a call of a homicide around 10 a.m. Monday morning in the 12000 block of Castle Hill Drive.
When deputies arrived, they found 41-year-old Nicole Jones dead at the home.
Detectives learned that 42-year-old Donald Germany, II, contacted family members and confessed to killing Jones, who was his wife, and asked that they pick up his daughter from the home.
The child did not witness the homicide and was not injured, according to EBRSO.
Germany told detectives that he and his wife had an argument the day before. When Jones returned home from work Monday morning, the two continued the conversation.
Germany stated that during the conversation a comment triggered him and he strangled his wife in the bed, killing her.
The Investigative Unit learned that deputies responded to a domestic incident at the couple's home in August 2015. Then, Germany's wife accused him of preventing her from leaving. She also claimed he threatened to kill her during an argument. He was charged with a misdemeanor assault.
