Man Charged For Theft, Weapons Threat
Prior to being charged with pointing a hunting rifle at his ex-wife and her girlfriend, Joseph Allen Keith was already facing potential charges for breaking into the women’s homes and stealing their things.
Keith was charged Wednesday with two counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of burglary and one count of felony violation of an order of protection. Two more misdemeanor charges of violating an order of protection were also included.
Pro-Tem Justice of the Peace Richard Phillips held Keith in lieu of a $50,000 bond.
Phillips ordered Keith be placed on GPS monitoring prior to his release and reiterated he must not contact the victims in his case.
In April, Keith was suspected of violating a protection order filed by his wife along with a petition for divorce. Keith’s ex-wife and her girlfriend reported two break-ins at their homes. Keith was taken to Yellowstone County Detention Facility.
