Christopher Bittle court hearing postponed

Ada —

A scheduled court appearance for Christopher Bittle, the man accused of breaking into his ex-wife’s home and assaulting her boyfriend, has been postponed pending a mental competency case.

Bittle was scheduled to appear Thursday at a hearing in Special District Judge C. Steve Kessinger’s courtroom. 

 His original $500,000 bond has also been reduced to  $250,000. Pontotoc County’s Assistant District Attorney Matthew Welde told The Ada News Thursday afternoon that he had no idea when Bittle would be brought back to court.

Bittle is facing three felony counts:

Count 1: Assault and Battery with a dangerous weapon.

Count 2: Battery/Assault & Battery on a police officer.

Count 3: Burglary in the First Degree.

Pontotoc County Deputy Tyler McKay was dispatched to 9497 CR 1550 at 3:15 a.m. on the morning of March 24 after a 911 call from Nicole Bittle reported that her ex-husband had broken into the house through a bedroom window and was fighting with her boyfriend, Jake Durham.

Ms. Bittle said she was awakened by the sight of her former husband coming into her bedroom through a window.
