Man accused of burning woman with joint

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle resident is wanted after allegedly burning a woman with a marijuana cigarette during an argument.

New Castle police charged Gary DeWayne Milton, 31, of 305 Halco Drive with simple assault and harassment under the domestic violence act yesterday.

A woman told police that she and Milton had an argument around 8:30 p.m. Jan. 14 and he would not let her leave his apartment. She said she got away from him and ran to a neighbor’s place and he followed her inside and choked her and smacked her in the face. She said he also burned her on her chin with his cigarette. The neighbor called the police and Milton let the woman go, and he left, police said.

District Judge Melissa A. Amodie has issued a warrant for Milton’s arrest.
