LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Josh Young is in trouble with the law again. The teen, who was acquitted at trial for killing his stepbrother Trey Zwicker in August 2013, is now charged with assault and wanton endangerment after several fights with his girlfriend.

WDRB News has obtained police records that say he was arrested early Saturday morning following a series of fights with his girlfriend on Friday.

The paperwork states Young and his girlfriend got into a verbal argument in the afternoon, which turned physical, leaving bruising on her arm. Police say Young also punched her in the stomach so hard she threw up.

Police say another fight broke out later that day because the victim was not in bed with Young. The officer on scene said Young choked the victim and placed a pillow over her face. According to the police report, the victim told officers Young told her he was going to make her watch while he killed her nanny, before killing her.

Police also say at some point during the arguments, Young said he would go into a police station and start shooting, so the police would have to shoot him. 

Trey Zwicker's dad Terry says he wasn't surprised when he saw Young had been arrested.

"I don't care if they acquitted him or not. He's guilty as sin and he'll pay for it someday.
People now can see he does have violent tendencies. All those people who were saying oh he's a good kid and wouldn't hurt a fly. They were wrong," said Zwicker.

Zwicker says he wants Young behind bars for good.

"He deserves to pay for what he's done and not only what he's done to that young lady. He deserves to pay for the murder of my child. I'm not stupid. I know the boy did it. I feel it in my bones that he did it so this just goes to show the jury was wrong by letting him go and now somebody else is hurt," he told WDRB.

Zwicker says now that Young is legally an adult, he hopes the justice system punishes him.

There's a higher power that's going to play with him the rest of his life. I told people from the get go he's an evil little child," said Zwicker.
