A man who threatened to kill his one-year-old son, his sister, and then himself at a Redtail Road, Jefferson residence on Aug. 29 was released from the Jackson County jail on $15,000 bond on Monday, according to jail staff at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
Geoffrey Blake Shelley, 25, was charged with terroristic threats and acts, false imprisonment, possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of a crime and cruelty to children.
A Jefferson Police Department incident report states that Shelley’s 26-year-old sister called 9-1-1 during the incident and police found her kneeling down behind a truck parked in the front yard when they arrived. The suspect came out of the house carrying the child after officers set up a perimeter and was handcuffed. An officer found a firearm in a wicker basket at the top of a closet inside the house.
