WACO (November 20, 2012)--A Waco man was in the McLennan County Jail Tuesday after his arrest in connection with a violent assault at a West Waco home.

Ronny Standifer, 50, was ordered held on bonds totaling $30,000 charged with aggravated assault and on a parole violation without bond, jail records showed.

Standifer was charged in connection with a violent assault on Cynthia Powell, 57, that happened Nov. 15 at her home in the 10000 block of Hiawatha.

Officers responded to a disturbance call at that address and when they arrived they found Powell suffering from what Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton described as significant injuries.
