A college instructor who is also an officer in the National Guard is charged with aggravated battery. Prosecutors say the victim is a 94-year-old woman. Christopher Bonds is being held on $50,000 bond.

Bonds is 41 years old and teaches at Chicago State University. Authorities say he elbowed and choked his wife's 94-year old great aunt after a property dispute.

Bonds and his wife claim the great-aunt suffers from dementia and her allegations are not true.
