Houston Cantrell of the Warren County Sheriff’s Department, he was dispatched to their home to investigate a physical domestic situation. He learned upon his arrival the two had been involved in a verbal argument that turned physical.“They were arguing about who did the most work around the house,” said Cantrell, noting the fight escalated slowly with Walker throwing a pillow at his wife. Things then took a turn for the worst when he grabbed her by the back of her head and started yelling.“He then wrapped both of his hands around her throat and continued to yell at her,” Cantrell said.
