MARION COUNTY — A 60-year-old Walnut Hill man was released from the Marion County Jail after he was formally charged Friday in court with felony aggravated domestic battery for allegedly shoving a woman from his moving vehicle in March.

Harold Cottrill was charged in Marion County Court Friday with Class 2 felony aggravated domestic battery, Class 4 felony reckless driving, and misdemeanor domestic battery in connection with the March incident that sent his female passenger to the emergency room at SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia with injuries that included a broken pelvis and possible brain bleed.

The woman reportedly told Centralia police she had been arguing with Cottrill and had opened the door of the vehicle as it slowed at an intersection so she could run for help.

However, she said Cottrill accelerated as he turned a corner and shoved her out of the vehicle causing her to hit the ground as he drove off.

Prosecutors sought to have Cottrill detained without bond. but Judge Amanda Ade-Harlow ordered the defendant released with special conditions including GPS monitoring and to stay at least 500 feet away from the alleged victim.

The Judge ordered Cottrill to return July 9 for a preliminary hearing and first appearance with an attorney.
