Sikeston man in custody for domestic assault
BENTON -- A Sikeston man was arrested after he failed to follow a Scott County Sheriff deputy's advice.
Matthew Wayne Carmack, 23, is charged with the felony of second degree domestic assault following an incident which began at 4 a.m. Monday, when Sgt. Charles Pratt was called to a Scott County residence in reference to a domestic disturbance between Carmack and a female.
