Voice-activated device calls 911, man accused of attacking wife
New Mexico (KWWL) -
A voice-activated speaker device called 911 and now a man has been charged with beating his girlfriend.
The alleged assault in New Mexico started when Eduardo Barros' girlfriend received a text message. Barros accused the victim of cheating and "stated he was going to kill her if she called the cops," according to court documents.
He asked her, "Did you call the sheriff?"
Court documents show a voice-activated speaker in the room heard Barros say "call the sheriff" and the device called 911.
At one point 911 called the victim's phone back.
"Barros saw the caller ID and threw (the victim) to the floor. Barros then kicked her while on the ground at least 10 times in the face and stomach," the criminal complaint said.
