Curt R. Crandell, 39, rural Brazil, was taken in to custody Tuesday, and transported to the Clay County Justice Center.
He was booked on two D felony charges, including domestic battery and battery resulting in bodily injury stemming from an incident in February
On Feb. 20, according to information provided by the Brazil City Police Department, a report concerning an alleged physical altercation involving Crandell and another individual in front of a juvenile at an undisclosed Brazil residence was filed.
However, Crandell had left before officers arrived on the scene.
Evidence gathered during the subsequent investigation led to a probable cause affidavit being presented in Clay Circuit Court by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
Judge Joseph Trout issued an arrest warrant for Crandell on March 4, setting his bond at $7,000 with no 10 percent allowed.
Appearing in court Wednesday, Crandell was advised of the formal charges, possible penalties and rights.
He pleaded not guilty and indicated he will hire his own attorney.
A jury trial in the matter was tentatively set for June 1.
Because Crandell was previously arrested on the same charges and bonded out, the court vacated the $7,000 bond set earlier in March and released him on his own recognizance.
Crandell was ordered to appear for all subsequent court proceedings, obey all laws and have no contact with the victim in the case.
A no contact order was entered on behalf of the victim.
Crandell was released Wednesday.
