Centralia Man Gets 4 and Half Year Prison Term for Aggravated Battery

May 17, 2017

A 31-year-old Centralia man has been sentenced to four and a half years in prison after entering a negotiated plea in Marion County Court Tuesday.

As part of the plea, Jerry Ezebuiroh of Maulding Drive pleaded guilty to an aggravated battery charge in connection with a May 2016 incident where he allegedly attacked his girlfriend. Five other counts including unlawful restraint, criminal damage to property, aggravated assault, and aggravated domestic battery were dropped.

Ezebuiroh was given credit for 375 days already served in the Marion County Jail and ordered to complete one year of supervised release once he is out of prison.

Centralia Police say Delinda Rowcliff of Maulding Drive was allegedly choked six or seven times and at one point had her cell phone smashed into her face to prevent her from calling the police. Ezebuiroh was reportedly armed with a knife at the time and threatened to kill her. The ordeal lasted over two days.
