Grovetown man sentenced on cruelty to children
A Grovetown man charged with burning his 2-month-old son last summer was sentenced to 15 years in prison at a Feb. 10 sentencing hearing.
Superior Court Judge Carl Brown sentenced William Andrew Kizzee Jr., of the 400 block of Railroad Avenue in Grovetown, to 15 years in prison followed by five years on probation, according to Assistant District Attorney David Parks White.
Kizzee was arrested in July after police were called to his residence and discovered the baby had burns all over his body. The baby also had four broken ribs, authorities said.
A grand jury indicted Kizzee in November on two counts of cruelty to children in the second degree. Kizzee pleaded guilty to both counts, according to court records.
The following accounts were taken from reports filed with the Columbia County Sheriff's Office:
Augusta teen assaulted at Martinez home
An Augusta teen told police Monday she was assaulted by her boyfriend in the early hours of Feb. 6 at his Martinez house.
The 17-year-old told police she was visiting her boyfriend when he began questioning her about her conversations with another male friend.
The boyfriend would not permit the teen to leave his bedroom and assaulted her when she did not answer his questions or when she said something he was not satisfied with, the teen told police.
From 2 a.m. until 5 a.m., the teen told police, her boyfriend punched, kicked and bit her and picked her up and dropped her on the floor.
There were several large bruises and bite marks on the teen's body seven days after the teen said the incident occurred.
