Jefferson City man gets probation in 2013 assault

December 14th, 2017 in Local News

A Jefferson City man has been placed on five years of supervised probation for pleading guilty to charges in connection with an assault in July 2013.

Although the woman died a day after the assault, no charges were filed concerning her death.

Albert Glisson, 31, was charged with felony second-degree domestic assault and two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child after police reported Glisson became angry July 19, 2013, and hit his wife, Amanda Glisson, 29, several times.

Their two children were in the home during the assault, officials said.

Police said Amanda Glisson "had been suffering from various degenerative physical ailments that prevented" her from moving around.

The next morning, Albert Glisson called 911, reporting his wife was unconscious and not breathing.

Emergency responders could not revive her, and she was pronounced dead at the home on McKinley Street.

An autopsy "revealed no further evidence that would immediately bring about further charges in this case," police reported.
