An Oklahoma fugitive is looking at multiple felony charges after he allegedly bit off his girlfriend’s chin and failed to show up to numerous court hearings, Fox News reported. 

Police were able to track down DeWaunte Leemont Nunley, 39, and arrested him on charges of domestic assault & battery by strangulation as well as maiming in the 2021 attack on his girlfriend at the time, Carey Johnson. 

According to Johnson, Nunley went on a


rage before the attack, she told CBS affiliate KWTV.

“It just looked like it wasn’t him. His eyes changed, his voice changed, his whole demeanor and he snapped,”

Johnson told the station.

“I tried to get out of the car but he pulled me in and started to kind of push me down like this so I couldn’t breathe, and I couldn’t yell.”

Nunley previously plead guilty to the charges and was sentenced to time served plus an additional 10 years of supervised release. However, Nunley never turned up to any of the three consecutive domestic violence review hearings he had in February, March, and April of 2023. A warrant was issued for his arrest.

“Today, Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Hagar was able to track down a dangerous fugitive who was wanted on a warrant, charging him for biting a woman’s chin off!”

the agency said in a statement, Wednesday.

“Nunley, who has a lengthy criminal history, failed to show up for court so a warrant was issued for his arrest. Deputy Hagar tracked Mr. Nunley to a homeless camp where he was arrested without incident on that outstanding warrant.”
