A Waco man is in prison after being accused of strangling his girlfriend and injuring her daughter.

Police say that Marcus McCauley, 30, got into an argument back in February that quickly escalated into violence.

The woman told her 10-year-old daughter to call the police and that’s when police say McCauley grabbed the girl's hand and twisted it, forcing her to drop the phone.

McCauley is in McLennan County Jail with Injury to a Child, Assault, and Interfering with an Emergency Call.
