Centralia Man Charged With Aggravated Battery to His Parents

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Bond has been set at $15,000 for a 31-year-old Centralia man who has been formally charged in Marion County Court with two counts of aggravated battery.  

Jason Carpenter of Walnut Hill Road is accused of entering his parents' home and punching both of them.  Carpenter is accused of repeatedly punching his father Geroge and then punching his mother Carol when she came to his assistance.  

Marion County Sheriff's Department reports indicate Carpenter also prevented his mother from calling police until after he had left.  By the time police located him, Carpenter had allegedly been beaten up himself by an unknown person.  He was taken to St. Mary's Hospital before being transported to the Marion County Jail where he remains.  

The charge is elevated to a higher class because both alleged victims are over the age of 60.  Carpenter had the public defender appointed to represent him.  He was ordered to have no contact with his parents if released on bond.
