Jefferson City woman charged with violating protection order

A Jefferson City woman faces a charge for violating a protection order.

According to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement, Kala Byrd violated the order Wednesday by appearing at the residence of a man with whom she shares a child and who has a protection of order against her.

Byrd was allegedly found when the man returned home from work and she was taking care of the child. He fled to another house shortly after telling her it was a bad time to be there.

The order, which is set to expire in January, states Byrd is not to be within 100 feet of the man. Authorities were unable to locate Byrd at the time of the call.
