Kombo acquitted on three felony counts

On June 27, Morrison County District Courts acquitted Daniel Maingi Kombo, 30, of all three felony counts including first degree burglary, domestic assault by strangulation and fifth degree assault.

On Jan. 24, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office received a report of an assault in Cushing.

According to the victim, she and Kombo lived together until June 2012 when they broke up. In January, the victim said he contacted her about his missing passport. She said he wanted to stop by and look for it. She said she told him no.

According to the victim,  Kombo arrived at the victim’s home a few minutes later, walked in without permission and refused to leave.

According to the criminal complaint, an argument escalated and Kombo grabbed the victim by the face and pushed her down onto her bed. He then climbed on top of her and put his hand around her throat. She had told police it had become difficult to breathe.

When she was able to get away, Kombo left the residence.

Todd Kosovich, assistant Morrison County Attorney, said the charges were acquitted in a jury trial.
