Legislative aide to Rep. Kelley charged with choking woman

Kolton M. Babb, 22, the legislative aide to Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar, is free on $10,000 cash bond after being charged with felony domestic assault in Boone County Circuit Court after allegedly placing a rag soaked with chemicals in a woman's mouth and choking her until she passed out.

As a condition of his bond, Babb is to have no contact with the woman.

Babb, who now lives in Columbia, formerly lived in Joplin and attended College Heights Christian School and Missouri Southern State University.

A Columbia Tribune account of the arrest says Babb and the woman were talking about sex at about 4 a.m.when the alleged attack occurred.
