1 min read

WHITING — A 29-year-old man is facing multiple charges following an investigation that began earlier this month.

On March 4, detectives say they opened an investigation into a suspected physical child abuse case.

Following an investigation, it was found that Kori Martell, of Whiting, assaulted a household member causing injury.

It was also found that Martell violated the previous court-ordered conditions of release stemming from a separate incident and provided false information to law enforcement in order to deflect the investigation.

Yesterday, he arrived at the New Haven barracks where he was subsequently processed and released on a citation.

He was scheduled to appear in court today for the charges of domestic assault, violation of conditions of release, and false reports to law enforcement authorities.
