A man accused of attempted murder in an assault on his ex-wife is now also accused of violating his parole.

Larry D. Crawford, 43, made his initial appearance on the parole violation charge Friday morning in Webster County Magistrate Court.

He was on parole for domestic assault second offense and operating while intoxicated, third offense convictions.

Crawford is being held on $1 million bond in connection with an assault on Jolene Crawford, 39, his ex-wife. She was last reported to be in critical condition at a Des Moines area hospital.

Crawford’s preliminary hearing on the attempted murder charge is scheduled for next Thursday.
