Threat of arson gets local man three aggravated misdemeanors
A Marshalltown man faces aggravated assault and child endangerment charges for threatening to burn down his home with his children and wife inside.
James Woods, 39, is charged with aggravated domestic assault and two counts of child endangerment without injuries, both aggravated misdemeanors.
Capt. Mike Hanken, with the Marshalltown Police Department, said Woods and his wife were arguing at their home on Jerome Street just after midnight Tuesday when Woods began throwing things in the presence of his 2-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son.
Hanken said Woods then threatened to burn down the house. No one was harmed during the incident.
Woods appeared in court Wednesday where the judge appointed a public defender, set bond at $2,000 and ordered Woods to turn over any firearms or ammo to the sheriff's office within 24 hours. His preliminary hearing is set for May 31.
