30-year-old allegedly fractured victim's orbital socket, orbital wall

A Cassville man has been charged with assault following an incident on Friday allegedly leading to the victim suffering a fractured right orbital socket and fractured right orbital wall.

Matthew Moore, 30, of Cassville, has been charged with first-degree domestic assault with serious physical injury, and he is being held in the Barry County jail on a $50,000 bond.

According to a probable cause statement filed by Kerry Headrick, with the Barry County Sheriff's Office, at about 9 p.m. on Friday, Moore allegedly struck the victim several times in the head and face. The assault led to the victim suffering orbital socket and wall fractures, bruising to the eye, nose and lip, and small abrasions on the face, neck and right ear.

The victim also reported losing consciousness for about 15 seconds after being struck in the head. The report also states Moore allegedly choked the victim and threw the victim into a wall.

Moore was booked into the jail at midnight Friday. His $50,000 bond is cash-only. A court date had yet to be set as of Monday afternoon.

In November 2014, Moore was charged in Lawrence County with first-degree assault, second-degree assault and armed criminal action. That case has a plea or trial date set for July 11. He was charged again with second-degree assault in August 2015 by the Cassville Police Department. That case had a disposition hearing on Tuesday.
