Friday night, Deputies were called to the 4200 block of West Main Street to investigate a disturbance. Officers made contact with the victim, a suspect, and a witness, who reside there together. The 911 call stated the suspect had hit the victim, breaking her glasses. At the time, she did not wish to pursue charges. The victim and the suspect were advised of the 12-hour domestic log that would be started, as well as the ex-parte process. About forty minutes later, Deputies were called back to the residence. It was reported the suspect had hit the victim again, just beside her left eye. The victim had noticeable bruising and swelling that the Deputies noted she did not have in their previous encounter. The witness stated he had watched the suspect hit the victim, and he stepped in to separate them. The victim stated the suspect had made hand gestures to her indicating he wanted to choke her. He had also stated he would “choke the life out of her” or “beat her until she doesn’t wake up anymore.” He also threatened to kill her, have his family beat her, and threatened to burn the trailer down. He had smashed a TV screen and threw lit cigarettes at her. Clifford Wood, 63, of Sedalia, was arrested on a charge of felony Domestic Assault in the 3rd Degree. Bond was set at $15,000 cash or surety**; with a condition he is to have no contact with the victim.

*There is not a listing with these charges in Casenet for a “Sara Meyer.” If the name is differently spelled or if the suspect uses an alias in unclear. Both Pettis County Sheriff Brad Anders and Major Tollie Rowe were unavailable for clarification.

** On the morning of May 6th, 2024, Wood was arraigned at the Pettis County Courthouse and denied an Own Recognizance bail, meaning his full bond stands. The court noted Wood stated he would leave Pettis County as soon as he was released and therefore was considered a flight risk. The court also noted there is a safety risk for the victim.
