Dispatch advised that the caller, [VICTIM #1], advised that her husband and herself were in a domestic and he left the scene in a grey Jeep Compass. Upon arrival at the residence Deputy Deaver met with Ms. [VICTIM #1] and the front door who was shaking and seemed very scared. Deputy Deaver then spoke with Ms. [VICTIM #1] who advised the following.
Ms. [VICTIM #1] advised that she arrived at her residence approximately at 1744 hours because she was at counseling.

Ms. [VICTIM #1] then advised that Mr. Cochran grabbed her right arm and stated, “I hate you, I want you out of my life”. Ms. [VICTIM #1] then advised that Mr. Cochran then let her go of her arm and left the scene in a gray Jeep Compass.
