A domestic dispute in the southern section of the county resulted in the arrests of two people on Sunday afternoon.

Laurel County Sheriff’s Deputies Daniel Grigsby and Larry Parrott responded to a 9-1-1 call of a domestic violence complaint between a husband and wife at Taylor Subdivision, nine miles south of London, around 2:30 p.m.

The investigation showed the couple had assaulted one another and deputies could not determine which one had struck the other person first. What was clear, however, was that an 11-year-old child was present while the dispute was underway.

Arrested were  42-year-old Michael W. Gilliam and 39-year-old Kimberly Gilliam, both of London, on charges of fourth-degree assault. Kimberly Gilliam was also charged on an outstanding warrant for harassing communications. Both were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
