Why hasn’t the man who beat a Jefferson City woman the night before she died been charged with murder? Two weeks ago Albert Glisson found his wife, 29 year-old Amanda Glisson, unresponsive. He admitted to having beat her the night before, and more in the past.
Jim Clardy, director of Jefferson City’s Abuse and Rape Crisis Service wants to know why murder charges haven’t been filed yet.
“Amanda died, we believe, as a result of her injuries. We’re still hoping for the autopsy to come back and show there was a correlation with the, self-admitted abuse, that the husband admitted to,” says Clardy.
Right now Albert Glisson faces only assault charges after admitting he hit Amanda the night before she was found dead.
