Kevin Michael Kelley

A woman and her children allegedly were threatened with a handgun by a Copperas Cove man after an argument about money, according to police reports.

Kevin Michael Kelley, 32, was arrested on a Cove police department warrant Monday by the Fort Hood Police Department after the Saturday night incident, on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.The victim told police Kelley threatened to “take care” of her and the children while pointing a handgun at her, if she told anyone about their marriage.

The charge is a first-degree felony because the victim was a family member, said Sgt. Kevin Miller of the Cove police department.

“Because other people were in the home, a protective order was issued,” Miller said.

He added Kelley does not have a criminal record with the Cove police department.

Kelley was booked into the Coryell County jail Monday afternoon and was no longer listed in the jail log as of Tuesday morning.
