Gerald Orton has been charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide, aggravated battery with intent to cause great bodily harm, and strangulation/suffocation in an attack on his estranged wife, Julie, about ten days prior to a scheduled pretrial conference in their divorce.

He is accused of coming to her residence, telling her she was going to die, grabbing her by the head and choking her, and hitting her with a mallet.

Police found Julie on the kitchen floor of her home after he called 911, saying “…I just killed my wife.” She sustained a brain hemorrhage and other injuries.

In May 2008, Gerald Orton was found guilty after a no-contest plea to charges of criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. He was placed on eighteen months probation and ordered to “not threaten or direct any acts of physical violence toward Julie O.” and complete a certified domestic violence treatment program.
