The victim “suffered significant bruises and contusions” from Kelley’s attack, officials said. Her 16-year-old daughter was also injured when one of the bullets fragmented, grazing her leg. Deputies said she was treated for the injury and released Aug. 9.
Deputies said Kelley had threatened the victim several times before Aug. 8. Days before he was killed, he attacked the victim and “fired multiple rounds from inside the residence to threaten and terrorize (her),” authorities said. In a statement, officials described Kelley has “a convicted felon who had two active domestic violence protection orders against him from two different women in Indiana and Ohio.”
No domestic violence or assault-related complaints were made about Kelley to Rutherford County deputies before last week’s attack, officials said.
Authorities with the Rutherford County District Attorney’s Office said the victim’s 15-year-old daughter will not face charges for the shooting, which was deemed justified.
