Judge rules that Joshua Young's phone calls must be supervised

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Joshua Young is sitting in a jail cell, but now all the calls he makes will be supervised.

Prosecutors say he's been trying to contact his girlfriend, who he's accused of beating up. 

"He allegedly punched her in the stomach so hard she vomited," said prosecutor Ashley Lile. "The substance of the prior calls are very alarming. We also believe he is speaking with other individuals and asking them to contact the victim in this case."

Young was acquitted in the murder of his step brother, Trey Zwicker, last year. But he was back in court Thursday morning to answer to domestic violence charges and charges of intimidating a witness.

Prosecutors wanted the judge to bar Young from making any phone calls, but the judge instead ruled that he could make phone calls -- but only if they were supervised.

In a separate case, Young is accused of going to his Cousin's home and punching her boyfriend, John Robertson, in the face. Robertson testified against Young during his murder trial. A grand jury will now decide whether to criminally indict Young on charges of assault and retaliating against a participant in the legal process.

His bond is still posted at $10,000.
