UPDATE: LR Air Force Base military police officer found not guilty

Posted: Updated:

JACKSONVILLE (KATV) - A jury Thursday found a Little Rock Air Force Base military police officer not guilty of beating a woman.

Cady Cassis said she had to go to the hospital after she suffered a broken jaw and several bleeding bruises to the head from Staff Sgt. Randall Burkhalter. Cassis said Burkhalter hit her several times around 2:00 a.m. on the Friday of Memorial Day weekend after a night of drinking.

About a dozen people testified, including Cassis and an eyewitness Nicole Wilson. Burkhalter did not testify.

In early testimony, it was stated Burkhalter allegedly pointed a loaded gun at Wilson's head and threatened, "I will find you and kill you if you call the police."

Burkhalter faced two charges: aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon with intention to inflict bodily harm because of Cassis' broken jaw and cerebral contusions, plus communicating a threat. He was found not guilty of both.

KATV's Marine Glisovic was in the courtroom when the verdict was read. Watch Channel 7 News tonight at 5:00 and 6:00 for her full report.
