Neosho man to stand trial in assault case

NEOSHO, Mo. — A Neosho man was bound over for trial Monday on a felony count of second-degree assault stemming from an altercation with his ex-wife’s ex-boyfriend at a carwash.

Thad L. Hulsey, 42, is accused of assaulting Matthew Heath, age unavailable, on June 25 at a carwash in the 700 block of West Harmony Street in Neosho.

Heath testified Monday during a preliminary hearing that Hulsey verbally assailed him from another bay. Heath told Judge Gregory Stremel in the Associate Division of Newton County Circuit Court that he approached the defendant, who then struck him with his fists multiple times in the head and face.

Heath testified that he had a relationship with the defendant’s ex-wife, but that that relationship was “going downhill” before the incident in June.

Heath testified that he suffered a black eye, cuts, and fractures to his cheekbones and skull as a result of the altercation.
