SIKESTON, Mo. (KFVS) - A man released from prison in 2018 after a murder charge against him was dismissed is now back behind bars.
David Robinson is facing charges of first-degree domestic assault and tampering with a victim in a felony assault case.
According to police, Robinson’s accused of assaulting a woman at a Sikeston liquor store on August 23.
Investigators say surveillance video from the business showed Robinson wrap his arm, and then a towel, around the woman’s neck until she passed out.
He then allegedly pushed her off a chair to the ground.
Robinson was also charged with tampering with a victim for allegedly telling the woman to tell people she got hurt in a car wreck.
The new case against Robinson comes from Scott County, but he’s currently being held in the Cape Girardeau County Jail.
Robinson entered a not guilty plea during a court hearing earlier on Monday, August 31.
He’ll go back before a judge to try and get his bond reduced on September 9.
In May 2020, Robinson reached an $8 million settlement with the City of Sikeston for wrongful conviction and incarceration.
