NMU student charged for domestic assault


A former NMU student has been sentenced in connection with a domestic assault that occurred recently in West Hall. Justin Kime was arrested shortly after 7 p.m. on Jan. 24, following a dispute in the dorm with a girlfriend, said Public Safety investigator Victor LaDuke. Neither Kime nor the woman, a Northern student, were seriously injured and no weapons were involved, LaDuke said. Kime, whose permanent address NMU lists as the city of Royal Oak, was subsequently charged with misdemeanor domestic assault, according to a Public Safety official. Details of his sentence were unavailable at press time. Kime was enrolled at Northern at the time of the incident, but has since left the school, the official said.
