SYCAMORE – A Genoa man accused of smashing his wife's face into a wall, which fractured her nose and left a cut that required staples, wants a judge to reduce his $75,000 bond Tuesday.

Nedzad Music, 32, of the 200 block of Stearn Drive, Genoa, was charged May 7 with aggravated domestic battery, battery, possession of a firearm without a firearm owner's ID card and endangering the life of his children. He's due in court Tuesday for a bond hearing.

About 9:20 a.m. May 7, Music allegedly argued with his wife over her alleged infidelity, grabbed her left arm and swung her head into a wall, court records show. Besides the fractured nose and cut, she also suffered severe bruising on her left arm, court records show. 

About two hours later, Music allegedly rammed his shoulder into another man's shoulder while walking past him at a store, court records show. Genoa Police Chief Ty Lynch said Music was seen throwing things into a retail dumpster before leaving the scene. 

Next, Music was driving with his four daughters, ages 3 to 8, at 3:47 p.m. May 7 when he drove into oncoming traffic and passed a red light, court records show. The passenger side of the vehicle, where his daughters were sitting, was almost hit by another vehicle, court records show. 

Music was arrested at Sycamore Street and Main Street around the time of the driving incident, Lynch said. Genoa police visited his residence at 11 p.m. May 7 and his wife gave his Yugoslavian SKS 7.62x39-caliber rifle to police, Lynch said.
