De Soto woman critically hurt in fight about a garbage can
DE SOTO • A woman was critically injured when a man hit her in the head with a baseball bat and a woman kicked her during an argument about a trash can, police said Wednesday.
Christina Goebel, 33, of De Soto, was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
The dispute started when she and another man visited friends in the 800 block of North Third Street in De Soto on Tuesday evening to help repair a car.
About 8:20 p.m., Jacob Lee Kelley, 27, and Melinda Warden, 28, approached a group in an alley and were angry a trash can had been moved. A fight broke out in which Kelley allegedly grabbed a wooden bat and struck a man in the back and Goebel in the face.
A witness said Warden then kicked Goebel in the head when she was down and punched two others, according to court documents.
