A Wilbarger County Jury has sentenced Juan Domingo Hill, 33, to 60 years for assault family-violence with a prior conviction.
Authorities said police responded to a 911 call in August of last year at a convenience store located on west Wilbarger Street in Vernon. The caller reported seeing a woman who appeared to have been severely beaten.
Vernon police eventually found the victim at a nearby residence. She said she and Juan Hill had gone out on the evening of August 22 to celebrate his birthday. She said they drank alcohol at a party and later had a disagreement. She went to their home on Marshall Street and minutes later Hill arrived. Police said Hill began hitting the victim on the face and body with his fists. She fled to a convenience store then stopped at a friend's home nearby. Police said Hill found the victim at the house and started beating her again.
