A third domestic violence case lands a 31-year-old Clay County man in jail on felony charges.

Louis Ray McWilliams was picked up Tuesday morning after being indicted for third-offense domestic violence, which is a felony if the cases fall within five years.

McWilliams was charged Feb. 1, 2018 for assaulting his wife.

According to Clay County Circuit Court records, he previously was convicted Dec. 19, 2013 for a Dec. 5, 2013 incident and then again Nov. 10, 2016 for a Sept. 23, 2016 incident.

If convicted, he faces between five and 20 years in prison.
