THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) -  A Pelham man will stay behind bars in Thomas county after being denied bond, charged with intent to murder his ex-wife. 

Officers said 43-year-old Scott Smith went to his ex-wife's home two weeks ago and threatened to come back and kill her. 

When he left, officers said he almost ran over someone outside of the home with his car.

Smith has faced domestic violence charges before. 

Captain Steve Jones with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office said, “This being his second offense, we're happy the judge denied bond.  And there are other reports on file of domestic violence with him as the aggressor.”

Smith is charged with two counts of aggravated assault with intent to murder, terroristic threats, simple battery, and cruelty to children.
