MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Three Mississippi County residents are facing felony charges following an investigation into an assault that took place in rural Mississippi County.

According to Mississippi County Chief Deputy Branden Caid, the investigation began last week when videos surfaced of two teenagers participating in an arranged fight which quickly turned to a one-sided assault.

Captain Barry Morgan and a trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol learned the fight had been arranged and chaperoned by several adults, one of whom is a licensed medical professional.

In an affidavit filed with the court, Morgan described the altercation as an assault and revealed one of the adults encouraged one of the teens to slam the other child’s head into the concrete while another prevented anyone from breaking up the attack.

None of the adults were related to either of the teens involved in the altercation.

Following the assault, the victim was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for head injuries.

Evelyn Shannon Hinkle, 40, of East Prairie, is charged with assault in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, both class d felonies punishable upon conviction by up to seven years’ imprisonment. 

Kathryn Nicole Kirby, 33, of East Prairie, is also charged with assault in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree. 

Laura Revelle, 48, of East Prairie, is charged with endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, a class D felony. 

Bonds for Hinkle and Kirby were set at $5,000, while Revelle’s bond was set at $2,500.

All three were released from the Mississippi County Detention Center after posting surety bonds Wednesday evening.
