Marshall man sentenced in Redwood County Court for domestic assault

A Marshall man has been sentenced in Redwood County Court for domestic assault over an incident last June.

According to court documents, on June 30 of this year, the Redwood Falls Police Department was called to a neighborhood on a report of a suspicious person in the area. The witness said an unknown white male with blood on his body asked to come inside the residence to clean up. The witness let the unknown male inside, then noticed him trying to leave through the bathroom window.

While police searched for the unknown male, they received a report of an assault that had occurred in that area. When police arrived at that residence, they recognized Taylor Kyle Denton, age 24, from the description of the suspicious male with blood on him.

When the police officer approached, Denton told him to step back since he “was having an adrenaline rush”. Denton also acknowledged he had “got into another altercation tonight.” Denton attempted to run inside the residence where the assault victim was, and was tased by police. Several witnesses on the scene confirmed details of the victim’s story.

Denton’s previous criminal history showed convictions for domestic assault in 2019 and 2017.

On Dec. 5, Denton was sentenced to 15 months in the correctional facility at St. Cloud, stayed for five years, 90 days local confinement, supervised probation for five years, and fees of $250.
