SMITH COUNTY, TX --On December 2, the Smith County Sheriff's Office asked for the public's assistance with locating Wesley Brian McDade, age 36, of Smith County. McDade was wanted for allegedly assaulting his wife at a residence on Highway 155 South last October.

He is currently being booked in to the Smith County Jail on charges of strangulation or suffocation of a family member, which is a Third Degree Felony, and a parole violation relating to a previous assault charge.

The Smith County Sheriff's Office expresses its thanks to the U.S. Marshal's Service, the news media and the public in their assistance with apprehending this individual.
