JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A convicted felon faces life in prison after new burglary and assault charges.
Police say 33-year-old Timothy Green broke into an apartment on North Liberty Street looking for his girlfriend. He threatened his girlfriend's sister with a handgun and left. Green later came back with the gun and search the home, finding his girlfriend hiding in the closet.
Green also threatened to kill his girlfriend if she did not tell him where she had been. He then tried to strangle her.
"This conviction continues to demonstrate that our office will aggressively prosecute perpetrators of domestic violence," said Assistant State Attorney Erin Wolfson.
Green was released from prison in October 2009 after serving ten years for armed robbery.
Green was convicted Friday afternoon on two counts of armed burglary with assault or battery, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of battery. He will be sentenced on September 24. He faces a mandatory life sentence.
