Nicholas Jack Craig, 31, of Muskogee is charged with six felonies and a misdemeanor in Muskogee County District Court after an incident on Oct. 7 with his significant other, according to documents filed with the case.
Craig is accused of choking his girlfriend or wife, wrapping a dog collar around her throat and dragging her across the front yard of their residence on North 17th Street with it around 11 p.m. on Oct. 7. He is also accused of striking her several times, chipping one of her teeth.
In addition, prosecutors have accused him of pushing a 13-year-old girl up against a wall by her throat, causing her to hit her back on a railing, slapping a three-year-old child and choking and throwing a 10-month-old baby to the ground.
Those incidents resulted in the six felony charges: three child abuse, two domestic assault and battery by strangulation and one domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor. The final charge, a misdemeanor of threatening to perform an act of violence, stemmed from Craig allegedly telling his wife or girlfriend “if you leave, I will kill all the kids. I will kill them all.”
Craig was previously convicted in August of 2018 of domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor and received a one-year sentence.
