According to police, on January 8, Stillwell left the house after an argument with her husband over bills, later returning with two men dressed in dark, hooded sweatshirts and armed with aluminum baseball bats.
When the victim, Gary Stillwell, asked the men to kindly get the fuck out, they refused and began beating him.
The victim told deputies that he was kicked in the face and struck with a bat several times. During the assault, Mr. Stillwell said, he overheard his wife, who was holding one of their children, yell, “Not in front of my babies!”
Thugs must not hear so well – one of the children was able to confirm the attack.
After the assault, the husband found a car key on the floor and handed it over to authorities. Investigators determined the key belonged to a Jeep that had been abandoned near the Stillwell’s residence.
After giving several different stories, one of those stories being that her husband had assaulted her, Ashley reportedly admitted to asking the Jeep’s owner and another man to come to the house and put the hurt on her husband. She failed, however, to explain why.
Ashley also told police that as her husband was being beaten, “she ran out the door and hid near the Jeep.”
Ashley was booked into jail and charged with second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon. The bat wielding, hoody wearing assailants have not yet been located.Tags: Ashley Stillwell, Assault, baseball bat, Gary Stillwell, Mankato, Minnesota
