Newton County Circuit Court records indicate Shirley Russell, wife of Acts II pastor Randall Danny Russell, filed May 14 for a dissolution of their marriage. A hearing is set for 3 p.m. July 7.
Russell is charged with three counts of child molestation, eight counts of statutory sodomy and single counts of statutory rape and child abuse in connection with alleged sex acts with underage church members.
His next hearing in that case is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. June 9.
In another development, Judge Kevin Selby granted a full order of protection against Russell May 21, which will be in effect for one year. On-line court records do not indicate who requested the order.
