CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Miami University police officer is accused of assaulting and threatening to kill his wife.

James Baker appeared in Hamilton County Municipal Court on Tuesday morning.

Court documents say Baker made daily threats against his wife, including holding a gun to her head on one occasion.

He is charged with two counts of aggravated menacing, resisting arrest, domestic violence and using a weapon while intoxicated.

The charges stem from an incident over the weekend at the couple's Colerain Township home.

Bond was set at $250,000.

Baker currently is on leave from the Miami University Police. He is listed on the website as Ofc. Aaron Baker, a firearms instructor with the force for 16 years.
