JULITA M. Namauleg, 53, has been charged in a domestic violence case by the government who said she assaulted her son and nephew on May 13, 2020 in Kagman.

 Namauleg appeared before Superior Court Associate Judge Teresa Kim-Tenorio on Tuesday for a preliminary hearing.

 After the hearing, Namauleg was remanded to the custody of the Department of Corrections. The court appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent her.

According to the information filed by the Attorney General’s Office, Namauleg was charged with two counts of assault and battery for striking, beating and causing bodily harm to her nephew and son. She was also charged with criminal trespass and disturbing the peace.

 Judge Kim-Tenorio imposed a $5,000 cash bail on Namauleg.

 The defendant’s nephew told the police that before the incident, his family called the police because Namauleg was yelling and saying mean things at the nephew’s house.

Responding police officers told her to leave and not to return to her nephew’s house.

 But the nephew said Namauleg returned to the house and started accosting one of her sons for driving another person’s vehicle.

 He said Namauleg started to get mad at her son, accusing him of many things. She then started hitting her son on the back of his head using her open palm, the nephew said, adding that he tried to restrain Namauleg’s hands but she turned around and hit him once in the cheek.

 In a freely given statement to the police, Namauleg said the incident was a “family matter.” She said she was drinking an alcoholic beverage on an empty stomach before the incident.

 Police noted in their complaint against Namauleg that in Oct. 2019, she was arrested for assault and battery when she cut her boyfriend with a knife while trying to stab him.

In Dec. 2019, she pleaded guilty to assault and battery and was placed on two years probation after serving a 36-day prison sentence. She is prohibited from consuming or possessing alcohol during her probation period.

 Namauleg also has a domestic violence conviction in 2015, involving a knife and consumption of alcohol.

 She is scheduled to return to court on June 29 at 9 a.m. for her arraignment.
