Three Chillicothe men accused of inflicting serious physical injury to someone by punching and striking that person in front of Saale’s Tavern in Chillicothe in December have been charged in Livingston County with assault in the first degree.

Bond was denied for Trey Clinton McLemore while Collin Edward Donoho posted an appearance bond, and Aaron Christopher Baker was released on his own recognizance today (Friday).

Bonds were previously $10,000 cash only, with conditions of no contact with the victim, witnesses, or co-defendant; supervision services; and weekly reporting to supervision or as directed by supervision services. Conditions for Donoho also included a dusk to dawn curfew unless work requires.

Donoho and Baker waived arraignment and entered pleas of not guilty in the Associate Division of Livingston County Circuit Court yesterday (Thursday). The matter was continued to March 18th. No court date is shown for McLemore.

A probable cause statement says five to six individuals jumped a woman and accuses McLemore, Donoho, and Baker of being responsible for the assault of a man who was later hospitalized with four broken ribs, a collapsed lung, and a broken leg.
