Lafayette County Felonies • Justino Hernandez-Chavez, 36, Darlington, was granted a one-year deferred prosecution Aug. 25 on a Class H felony charge of strangulation and suffocation, stemming from an incident at his Kennedy Drive home on Dec. 28. Court records indicate he got angry over lost apartment keys and became violent and abusive toward a woman at the apartment, in front of her children. She later told police this was not the first time he was violent toward her and she feared he was going to kill her because of the pressure he applied on her throat while strangling her.
