Accused in separate assaults involving an off-duty police officer and an off-duty police dispatcher, who is also his wife, a Wytheville man is being held without bond on felony and misdemeanor charges.

Mark Milburn Anderson, 45, an employee of Wytheville’s Highland Funeral Service, was arrested on Wednesday, March 20, after Wytheville Police Department officers investigated a report of a fight around 8 p.m. at Anderson’s 695 North 28th St. residence that he shares with his wife, Kathy Anderson, and April Evans, a WPD patrol officer, police said.


According to Officer K.E. Akers’ criminal complaint, Evans told police that all three had been arguing and fighting and that she went outside with Mark Anderson before Kathy Anderson said that she was having a heart attack. When Evans went back inside,“her and Mark got into a fight and he pushed her down into the floor. She got up and he pushed her down again, and hit her head and arm,” the officer wrote in the complaint.

WPD Chief Rick Arnold said that Evans sustained injuries in the assault but did not go to a hospital. Kathy Anderson, though, was transported for possibly having a heart attack and was later released.

In court records, a magistrate wrote that Mark Anderson said that all three had been in a sexual relationship that had become extremely volatile.

“Things have escalated and they’ve gotten out of control,” the paperwork said.

In denying Mark Anderson bond on a charge of domestic assault against Evans, the magistrate also checked “yes” in a box about whether or not the accused would be likely to obstruct justice or threaten or intimidate a witness or victim.

“I, the magistrate, feel as if I have gotten a heavily edited version of events,” he wrote.

In addition to being accused of misdemeanor assault and battery, Mark Anderson was also charged with malicious wounding, a felony, on Thursday in a March 11 incident involving Kathy Anderson.

According to the town officer’s complaint, Kathy Anderson sustained a 2 ½-inch cut to her hand after another heated argument between the three at the residence.

The officer wrote that Kathy Anderson went to the bathroom after Mark Anderson jerked the covers off of her and Evans, who was trying to calm Kathy Anderson down after an argument earlier the same day.

Kathy Anderson reported hearing Mark Anderson and Evans “yelling at each other and them bouncing off the walls.”

The complaint said that Mark Anderson then came into the bathroom and pulled out a pocketknife.

“Kathy asked,‘What are you going to do cut me?’” the officer wrote.

Mark Anderson then swung the knife at his wife and she blocked it with the heel of her right hand, the complaint said.

The March 11 incident was not immediately reported to police, Arnold said.

Mark Anderson, whose only other brush with the law was a reckless driving conviction that was later dismissed on appeal, was arraigned on the felony charge on Friday and did not qualify for a court-appointed attorney. His court date has been set for April 23 in Wythe County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

A malicious wounding conviction carries a possible penalty of up to 20 years in prison.

Chief Arnold said that the department would be doing an internal investigation of the case as well.

Sounds like Kathy and April was bumping monkeys and Mark didn't get to play. Guess it comes back around since Mark shacked up with Kathy and Ikey years ago. Mark and Kathy decided they didn't need Ikey to play anymore so they took off and left Ikey. Guess Mark knows how Ikey feels now.
