COLUMBUS – A pair of new criminal cases are now on a 46-year-old Columbus woman’s personal court docket after action in Platte County Court on Wednesday.

Defendant Kimberly Knight was bound over for a district court jury trial after waiving her right to a preliminary hearing on two charges of felony shoplifting stemming from separate incidents at Sapp Bros. Truck Stop and Menards a week ago.

Judge Frank Skorupa set Knight for a first arraignment hearing in district court on April 24.

Also Wednesday, the city woman was arraigned in county court on four misdemeanor charges in connection with commotion she is accused of committing following booking into the county lockup after last week’s shoplifting reports.

The city woman is facing charges of obstructing government operations, disturbing the peace, criminal mischief-$0-$500 and unlawful testing of a fire alarm at the jail.

Knight is scheduled to enter pleas on the misdemeanor charges on May 10.

Knight already had three open felony cases pending in district court before court actions during the last 10 days.
