On Monday, Timothy Uddley was arraigned for his wife's murder. Tuesday, NewsChannel 11 learned more about his violent past.
Uddley was released from prison in 2004, after serving a 10-year sentence for attempted murder in Hale County. Then just months after his release, Uddley was given two years probation in connection with an assault charge.
This weekend, police say Uddley broke into his estranged wife's apartment in the 1400 Block of 65th Drive, and killed her during a domestic dispute. 20-year-old Andrea Mendoza was also the mother of Uddley's infant daughter. The child is now being cared for by Mendoza's family.
