BOZEMAN - A local woman is behind bars accused of assaulting her physically disabled husband with a hatchet.
Kimberly Parac-Kesler, 52, is charged with assault with a weapon. She is being held on $10,000 bail at the Gallatin Detention Center after an initial court appearance on Wednesday.
Gallatin County Sheriff's deputies were called to the Bozeman residence at around just before 7 p.m. Wednesday for a report of an assault.
They found Parac-Kesler "visibly intoxicated, emotionally charged and alternated between being angry and crying sorrowfully" according to court documents.
Parac-Kesler reportedly told deputies that she and her husband were arguing after returning from a bar, and during the argument she struck her husband in the head with a hatchet.
Her husband reportedly suffered a large laceration to his head. Court documents state that he was seated when his wife struck him with the hammer and that there was no physical contact before that.
Parac-Kesler reportedly told a deputy that she provides care for her husband who suffers from physical disabilities. She also said that she is disabled.
