On 08/29/2017 at approx. 6:00 A.M., the Oregon County Sheriff's Officer received a report that a man had attacked his mother and her paramour with a knife on Park Avenue in Koshkonong.

Melina Morgan, of Koshkonong, stated that her son, 24 year old Nathan Morgan, crept into her bedroom while she and Ronald Kelley, of Mammoth Spring, were sleeping and attacked them with a knife. Melina was able to retreat out of the residence and across F highway to a neighbor's house while Kelley struggled with Morgan.

Melina Morgan was transported to Ozarks Medical Center by ambulance for treatment of wounds received in the attack. Kelley sought medical treatment by private vehicle.
