On 26 Jan 14 Melissa D. Williams, age 37, 1450
Rocky Point Road, Fleming, reported she was traveling in the
county upon her return from a trip when she noticed that her
estranged husband, Kurt Williams, age 33, 5137 Bull Creek Road,
Parkersburg, was following her. Ms. Williams said her husband
threatened to harm himself if she would not allow him to see
their child and she feared what he might do while he followed
her in his vehicle. Mr. Williams followed his wife to the Sheriff’s
Office, at which time Deputy Sheriff Augenstein spoke to him
and ordered him to stop following his wife. When Ms. Williams
departed the Sheriff’s Office, Mr. Williams repeatedly
phoned her and continued to follow her in his vehicle. Eventually,

violence. For ignoring the order to stop following his wife,
Mr. Williams was also charged with failing to cease and desist.
