WEST ODESSA - A West Odessa man is behind bars after he kicked his disabled father-in-law in the face with steel toe boots.

Authorities say Javier Chavez accused his wife of sleeping with men from their church.

Then out of nowhere, his wife claims Chavez started punching her father in the face, knocking him to the ground.

Chavez's wife tried to pull him off her father but says Chavez proceeded to kick the man in the face with his boots twice.

Chavez is charged with first degree injury to a disabled person with intent to cause serious bodily injury.
