Ste. Genevieve County resident Wilson Dean Ackman, 40, faces three felony charges from a domestic assault incident involving a minor that was reported in November of 2018.
Ackman was charged with domestic assault in the first degree with serious physical injury and armed criminal action as well as the unlawful use of a weapon/exhibiting.
He has a bond appearance hearing scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday, February 27, in the Ste. Genevieve County Courthouse.
Ste. Genevieve R-II School District staff members became concerned about the possibility of child abuse based on a student’s injuries in November and contacted school resource officer Christy Clark, according to the officer’s probable cause statement.
The child reported that Ackman used a kitchen knife to cut the child on the cheek and also kicked the child one time.
