Altheimer woman arrested after allegedly hitting man with car


An Altheimer woman who allegedly hit a man with her car Thursday will have to post a $10,000 bond to be released from the county detention center while prosecutors prepare felony charges against her.

On Friday, Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Teresa Murry, 42, with first-degree battery.

Bridgforth also ordered Murry to have no contact with the alleged victim, Adrian Boykin, until the case is settled.

Jefferson County Seriff’s Investigator Kaleisha Wise reported Murry allegedly hit Boykin with her car after Boykin and Murry’s son were involved in an altercation at the Git-N-Go store at Altheimer.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Hoots was sent to the Shell Gas Station at Altheimer at 1:20 p.m. in response to a reported disturbance, and when he arrived, was told that the alleged victim was at a house in the 200 block of Main Street.

Hoots reported that he saw Boykin “fall down and appear to be in pain” when he arrived at the house.

A witness told Hoots that they saw a blue Ford Mustang come down Third Street, hit Boykin, and “knock him into the air.”

When Murry was located, she denied hitting Boykin with a vehicle, Wise said in the probable cause affidavit.

Bridgforth told Boykin to come back to court Nov. 30.
