Deputies responded to a home off Forest Shore Drive in Miramar Beach on Saturday, May 10th, after a third party contacted the Broward County Sheriff’s Office stating she received a text from a friend from the above location that read “Send the police do not call back.” Deputies arrived at the Miramar Beach home and contact was made with the victim. The victim was visibly upset, had bruises around her neck consistent with being choked, bruises on her arms, legs and shoulders and a laceration underneath her chin. The victim told deputies that she was held against her will by her husband for several days and that he also threatened to kill her. The husband, William Alfred Bozeman, 48, of Miramar Beach, choked his wife twice and held a knife to her throat stating, “I’m gonna kill you.” Bozeman also took his wife’s phone in an attempt to keep her from contacting law enforcement.
Bozeman is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, battery, battery by strangulation, false imprisonment and obstructing justice by intimidation or threaten a witness.
