Bond has been set at $75,000 for a Chester man accused of shooting another man in the head with an arrow.
Kenneth Larrabie Miesen, 42, of Chester surrendered to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office about 2 p.m. Tuesday after being sought in connection with the arrow shooting that sent a man to the hospital on Monday. He was booked into the Crawford County Detention Center on suspicion of first-degree battery.
On Wednesday, Miesen appeared before Circuit Court Judge Gary R. Cottrell who ruled there was enough evidence to hold Miesen. Cottrell set Miesen’s bond at $75,000.
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Russell Harper had requested a $250,000 bond.
Raymond Van Holson, 41, of Chester was hospitalized Monday after being shot in the head with an arrow sometime before midnight. Holson drove from the scene of the shooting in the 18000 of McCaslin Branch Drive to the 600 block of East Front Avenue, nearly six miles, before being flown to Washington Regional Medical Center.
Miesen allegedly shot Holson after the two argued about some property taken from Miesen’s ex-girlfriend’s house to his ex-wife’s house, according to a incident report.
Holson has been released from the hospital.
