Last month, Chad Wheeler was arrested for suspicion of felony domestic violence when it came to his girlfriend Alleah Taylor. He was accused of assaulting Alleah and booked into the King County Correctional Facility, with his bond set at $400,000, and she was transported to the hospital.
Now Alleah is speaking out for the first time about the incident. In a new interview with Jericka Duncan for CBS This Morning, and spoke about the incident.
In the interview, she said, “I had touched my face, and I looked down and there was — there’s blood on my hand. And I remember getting up and running to the bathroom. Chad was standing by the bed, by the doorway, and he was sipping his smoothie. And he was, like, ‘Wow, you’re — you’re still alive.'”
She continued to explain, “I’m grateful he didn’t grab me in that moment. I was able to run to the bathroom. He went back into the living room to continue eating. I had texted his dad too, and told him that Chad was trying to kill me. And showed him a picture. Chad’s dad called him while he was eating. And while I was in the bathroom. And he answered. And he didn’t have any worry at all, and Chad was, like, ‘I’m just eating dinner. Nothing’s going on.’ And that terrified me.”
