Derrick Lockhart Eric Blackmon Thomas Killingsworth
Three Chilton County man were arrested late last month in relation to an assault case involving two victims.
A report was filed with the Sheriff’s Office on July 24 from two victims. Deputies responded to the call of assault that had occurred near the waterfall on Lake Mitchell.
Sheriff Michael Howell reported that an altercation had occurred, and the first victim was allegedly beaten by numerous individuals. The victim was injured, and the suspects proceeded to assault the second victim, as well.
The investigation culminated in the arrests of 44-year-old Derrick Lockhart, 33-year-old Eric Blackmon and 46-year-old Thomas Killingsworth.
Howell said that all three suspects assaulted both victims. This led to the three Chilton County men each being charged with both second-degree assault and third-degree assault.
Total bonds for each were set at $7,500. All three have since been released on bond to await trial.
