Wednesday was the second time in less than a week that UC Irvine police responded to Gregory Scott Turner's home on campus on a report of domestic violence, university officials said Thursday.
Turner, 33, is wanted for attempted murder after he tried to strangle his wife to death Wednesday afternoon in their Verano Place home at UCI, police said.
Police were called to his home the first time on Dec. 9 after an argument between him and his wife turned physical, said university spokesman Tom Vasich. Records show Turner was arrested and released from jail Monday. Court records did not show any criminal charges related to that incident.
