A Clarke County grand jury this week indicted a man for seriously disfiguring his sister with a box cutter during a domestic violence incident two months ago at a Danielsville Road residence, according to court records.

Kendle Rodrecus Partee, 39, was charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery, making a terroristic threat, criminal trespass/damage to property, and third-degree cruelty to children, according to the indictment that was filed Tuesday in Clarke County Superior Court.

The indictment accuses Partee of “maliciously cause bodily harm to (the victim) by cutting (her) across both of her thighs” during an Aug. 18 altercation.

The injuries were deep and “seriously disfigured” the victim, the indictment states.

Partee was charged with making a terroristic threat for allegedly telling the victim that he would get a gun and kill her, according to the indictment.

Partee also damaged the victim’s TV, and the violence was intentionally done in the presence of a minor, the indictment alleges.

Partee was released from jail upon posting a $5,500 good security bond on Aug. 20.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 25.
