A Chippewa Falls man faces felony charges after an October incident in Lake Hallie where he threatened to “end” a woman if she went to law enforcement.
According to a criminal complaint, on Oct. 15, a female contacted the Lake Hallie Police Department, saying she had been a victim of domestic abuse. Mark D. Mailly, 36, had entered the residence while she was sleeping, the female reported, and grabbed her by the neck and sat on her when she attempted to reach a child also in the residence.
Later that day, the woman attempted to leave the residence, but Mailly allegedly stopped her from leaving and struck the woman’s face. Mailly also grabbed her by the throat while she was holding an infant child, the criminal complaint alleged, pushed her onto a couch and prevented her from crying out.
Mailly threatened to “bury” the woman in court and “end” her if she complained to the police, the complaint said.
Mailly has been charged with a count of felony intimidation of a victim, false imprisonment, strangulation and suffocation, felony bail jumping, misdemeanor battery-domestic abuse, eight counts of misdemeanor bail jumping and disorderly conduct-domestic abuse. All the charges stem from incidents during Oct. 14 and 15.
Mailly is also facing an October felony charge of possession of methamphetamine; he will appear in Chippewa County court on Jan. 3 for a review hearing in that case. His initial appearance for the new felony charges will also take place Jan. 3.
Mailly has been released on bond.
