Angel Haltom
A Harmony woman faces allegations of domestic violence.

According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, a domestic dispute was reported at an unidentified Harmony residence shortly before 7 p.m., Monday.

A female caller informed E911 dispatchers Angel Haltom, 39, was allegedly hitting a family member.

On arrival, officers determined from interviews with the alleged suspect, the unidentified victim and witnesses, including a 13-year-old neighbor who saw and heard parts of the altercation, Angel Haltom did, in a rude, insolent or angry manner, smack or strike a male family member, causing injury, redness and pain.

Further investigation helped officers determine there was more than one violent incident.

Approximately an hour before being dispatched to the residence, E911 dispatchers received a call from the victim. He was inquiring about how to evict Haltom from the residence.

While on the phone, officials confirmed a conversation between the victim and the neighbor/witness regarding his well being could be overheard.

Haltom was taken into custody and transported to the Clay County Justice Center. She was preliminarily charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery and one count of felony domestic battery in the presence of a minor under 16-years-old.

According to jail officials Thursday afternoon, Haltom had her initial appearance in court, but remains in custody on a $7,000 cash bond, with 10-percent allowed, while awaiting further court proceedings.
