Woman charged with hitting husband with hatchet

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.
