HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A 40-year-old remains jailed on some serious charges after a domestic case in the city.
Jeffery Kennedy was taken into custody around 11:40 p.m. Thursday for suspicion of kidnapping, battery, interference with law enforcement, criminal trespass and violation of a protection from abuse order.
According to statements made in court Friday morning, he was seen dragging a woman by her hair back into a Hutchinson home. Police were called. When officers arrived, no one would answer the door. At one point, officers saw someone look through the curtains. Officers eventually forced their way into the home and found the victim with a cut under her eye. Kennedy had a bump on his head because the victim threw a lamp at him.
Bond was set at $101,750. There was no discussion of changing it.
Kennedy has a prior conviction for possession of opiates.
He will be back in court on Sept. 19.
