Chickasaw man acquitted of aggravated assault

By NEMS Daily Journal

A Chickasaw County man recently was found not guilty of aggravated assault of his ex-wife following a January 2009 incident at their former
home.
Russell Kilgore, of Houston, was initially charged with aggravated assault after a confrontation with his ex-wife, Katie Bryant at 46 County Road 130, in which Bryant suffered a laceration to her scalp that required 50 stitches.
A two-day trial in Chickasaw County Circuit Court on March 29-30 saw the jury return the not-guilty verdict.
