Percy Thompson, 34, was charged with criminal homicide, failure to appear and driving with a revoked license, according to Davidson County Jail records. Witnesses told police that on Sunday they observed Thompson throwing his wife on the ground and punching her until she was left unconscious at their Whites Creek home, according to Nashville news station WKRN. Police found the woman covered in blood in the back seat of a car after the attack.
When police interviewed the victim’s mother, she explained Thompson was upset about the outfit his wife wore to church. His wife ordered him to leave after the argument that took place in front of their children. Thompson left and reportedly came back and forced his way back into the home. He then allegedly pushed his wife down the stairs and beat her in the face in front of the home. He packed clothes and drove away, but police were able to track him a few miles from their home, according to the report obtained by WKRN.
