MONROE - A Darlington man faces charges in Green County Circuit Court that he trespassed earlier this month into the home of a Monroe woman he knows, hit her and strangled her with a belt. Chad Alan Johnson, 33, was charged Aug. 12 with felony counts of strangulation, false imprisonment and intimidation of a victim, as well as misdemeanor counts of trespassing, disorderly conduct, battery and bail jumping. He reportedly came in through the back door of the woman's home on Aug. 9, hit her in the face and hip and blocked her from leaving, then took his belt and wrapped it around her neck and threatened to kill her.
