Attempted murder is charged

New Richmond resident Robert Dale is facing charges of first-degree attempted murder and felonious assault for allegedly choking Jennifer Heuser.

Dale, 22, was arrested in the late hours of July 31 by the Georgetown Police Department after nearly an hour of searching for him in both the woods and in an apartment on Airport Road in Georgetown, according to documents filed in the Brown County Municipal Court. Dale was then taken to the Brown County Adult Detention Center, where he remains incarcerated, according to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office online jail roster.

The court documents state that the Georgetown PD was dispatched to 9001 Airport Road for a male who assaulted a female. The officers spoke to Heuser, who described how she and Dale had gotten into a “heated argument” over jealousy issues with Facebook, the popular social networking website.

Heuser continued telling the officers there had been two separate incidents that evening when Dale allegedly put his hand around Heuser’s throat, cutting off her airway. Heuser’s statement included that she hadn’t lost consciousness, but the officers noted in the court documents that when interviewing her, Heuser had large red marks all around her neck and there was even surface blood.

Heuser also had a bloody mark on her arm, after Dale allegedly struck her in her apartment’s kitchen, allegedly falling on a picnic table. Then, the court documents continue, Dale again allegedly strangled her, blocking her airway with his hands.

The court documents state the officers next attempted to locate Dale, but were unable to do so, after searching for about 45 minutes in both an apartment and the woods nearby.

Finally, the police officers decided to use a decoy, and they backed out their police cruisers before returning on foot. Ten minutes after they had supposedly left, Dale came out of hiding and went into an apartment. A police officer then arrested Dale and read him his rights, the court documents said.

The documents state that Dale originally claimed that he hadn’t touched Heuser and but eventually admitted he had only “pushed her hard.” He also alleged that Heuser had hit him and that Dale was only acting in self defense, but the officer stated in the documents that no marks or wounds were seen on Dale’s body.

According to the documents, Heuser told the officers that Dale had already been charged for assaulting her in Clermont County, and that he had allegedly made death threats to her and had threatened suicide.

While the charges of attempted murder and felonious assault are both through the Brown County Municipal Court, the officers involved in the arrest were advised by patrolman Walt Griffith and Lieutenant Robert Gifford that they had taken a class sponsored by the Brown County Prosecutor’s Office and that the actions and wounds described met the standards of a first-degree felony of attempted murder.

The Brown County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed they have conducted domestic violence seminars in the past.
