MOULTRIE, Ga. — A Saturday night spat between a couple — whose domestic troubles had brought police to their residence three times in two days and who had been separated earlier that day — landed both of them jail on battery charges.

Sunny Jo Leon, 36, and Marcos Cruz Leon, 40, were arrested at their 513 Still Road residence and charged with simple battery. Marcos Leon told police that two deputies had taken his wife away from the residence earlier because they were fighting. After she came back, he reported, she hit him in the face.

Marcos had two knots on his head, police said, which he told them were from his wife hitting him two weeks earlier.

When the officer spoke with Sunny Leon she told him that Marcos Leon called her and asked her to come back home after they had separated earlier.

When she got home, she told police, he hit her in the face. Sunny Leon had a black eye, police said. She told them that she had been injured during another argument about a week earlier.
