Commonwealth v. Jerry Wayne Daisey; Man Sentenced to 36 Years in Prison for Brutal Attack of Ex-Girlfriend

Virginia Beach, Va. – Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth’s Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that Jerry Wayne Daisey, age 56, formerly of the 100 block of 66th Street in Virginia Beach, Virginia, was sentenced today for charges of Statutory Burglary, Abduction, Strangulation, and Assault and Battery of a Family Member.  Circuit Court Judge Steven C. Frucci sentenced Daisey to serve 36 years in prison.  This greatly exceeds the high-end of the Virginia State Sentencing Guidelines, which recommended a maximum sentence of six (6) years and seven (7) months.

Daisey pled guilty on July 31, 2023.  Had this matter gone to trial, the Commonwealth’s evidence would have proven that on the night of July 30, 2022, Jerry Wayne Daisey came to the victim’s home and rang her doorbell several times, but she refused to open the door.  She locked all the doors to the home and went upstairs to bed, closing and locking her bedroom door as well.  She woke to loud banging on her bedroom door.  She could see that it was Daisey and grabbed for her phone.  Daisey yelled, “You will be dead before they get here.”  Daisey got into the bedroom and grabbed the victim by her hair.  He punched her several times in her face and head.  The victim tried to break her bathroom window and pushed a shelf over trying to get her neighbors’ attention.

Daisey held the victim on her bed against her will.  He told her he was going to kill her but that he would let her say goodbye to her family first.  He also threatened to kill her dog.  He eventually allowed her to get some water in the kitchen, but he would not allow her to hold the glass.  Daisey grabbed a knife and continued hitting her and pulling out her hair.  He told her if she did not go back upstairs with him, he would knock her out.  She was held against her will for several hours.  At one point Daisey choked the victim until she blacked out and urinated on herself.  Eventually Daisey calmed down, changed out of his bloody shirt, and left the house.  Daisey was captured on surveillance footage from a nearby restaurant getting out of a white Chevy Silverado just after 1 a.m. and walking towards the victim’s house.  He was again seen on surveillance footage just after 8 a.m. wearing a different shirt and leaving the parking lot. 

Shortly thereafter, Virginia Beach police officers responded to the victim’s home.  They observed visible injuries to her face and arms.  The victim told officers she had been in a relationship with Daisey and had lived with him until January 2022.  She changed the locks to her home in February 2022. The victim’s injuries included a broken nose, bruised ribs, petechiae of the eyes due to the strangulation, and numerous bruises. 

Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Liane Galardi prosecuted this case. Please contact Macie Allen if additional information is desired.
