Court Date Pushed Back in Attempted Homicide Case

It probably won’t be until early next year that a 31 year old Sturgeon Bay man, accused of seriously injuring a woman after he ran her over with his car, appears in Door County circuit court. Kimoni Garner faces charges of first degree intentional homicide, substantial battery, hit & run, mayhem, bail jumping, driving without a valid license, operating a vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance, fleeing an officer & disorderly conduct. Several of the charges come with the enhancement of causing great bodily harm. Garner’s next court date was supposed to be on November 27th, but, earlier this week, District Attorney Ray Pelrine told Judge Peter Diltz that reports needed for the case were not available. It appears that the earliest possible date to begin the court proceedings is now in February. Court documents indicate that on June 23rd, Garner got into a fight with another man at a west side Sturgeon Bay home. At one point, he allegedly got into a car & attempted to run the man down twice. When that proved unsuccessful, he pointed the vehicle at the woman & ran her down, then left the area at a high rate of speed. In an attempt to elude officers, Garner’s vehicle reached speeds of over 110 miles per hour before he pulled over & was arrested without incident. The victim was hospitalized for treatment of multiple injuries, some of which she may never recover from. Garner’s bail was set at $150,000 cash & he remains in the Door County Jail.
