An arrest affidavit claims Joseph and his wife argued over infidelity.  He allegedly pushed her onto a couch and began to strangle her and also punched her in the face. The affidavit indicates police saw “visible redness and swelling” around her left eye.  A witness, reportedly the wife’s brother, was at the couple’s home when the alleged assault happened on Wednesday.
