Stabbing results in arrest

Charles Daniel Kent
COALMONT -- Officials with the Clay County Sheriff's Department arrested a Linton man following an altercation in Coalmont Saturday.

According to officials, deputies were dispatched to Coalmont late Saturday evening in reference to a possible altercation and stabbing.

Upon arrival at the scene, deputies reported several subjects were apparently present when the altercation took place.

Officials stated the altercation allegedly started when a father stopped by a residence in Coalmont to visit with his 3-month-old son and the son's mother.

The homeowner informed the father of the child he was not welcome at the residence and a physical altercation ensued.

A short time later, according to officials, the homeowner walked inside the residence and informed the occupants he had been stabbed.

Officials stated those present reported finding several puncture wounds on the homeowner's abdomen and back areas.

The father of the child was identified as Charles Daniel Kent, 34, Linton.

According to the witnesses, Kent allegedly "banged" on the door and was denied entry by the homeowner, Bradley Rehmel.

Witnesses stated Kent and Rehmel began fighting in the yard of the residence and during the fight, Rehmel was stabbed several times.

Rehmel was initially transported to Sullivan County Hospital and immediately flown to Methodist Hospital, Indianapolis, where he was taken into surgery. Rehmel's condition was not known at press time.

Kent was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital, Brazil, where he was treated for a broken nose. He was treated, released and arrested and taken to the Clay County Justice Center where he was preliminarily charged with Batter with a Deadly Weapon, causing Serious Bodily Injury, Trespassing and Public Intoxication.

As of Sunday, Kent remained incarcerated on a $25,000 bond, with no 10 percent allowed.

Precisely why the child support guidelines should include meeting at a "neutral" location (parents only) for visitation.

Unless the father is deemed a danger (and after this he may be), he should be allowed to see his child (as should the mother).

Too many parents (mothers AND fathers) use their children to "punish" the other parent - for not being in their (former spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend) lives. It's selfish and ultimately hurts the child.

I hope this isn't the case here.

Emmes....I can't believe this came outta yer mouth....wow....because the charges on DORAN....are for basically the same friggin' reason's if you knew the whole story! Just to let ya know too she accused Doran too of RAPE before when she was pregnant with their son and they got back together and when things fell apart for her she used their baby son as a weapon against him and hollered RAPE again and thats why he wasn't charged with RAPE in the end...so next time you decide to comment on a story know all the facts to it first cuz I do know the facts to it! No it is not an excuse for some of his charges but they let murderers and child molesters get by with more than what they did to him....it's not out of the news yet!
