Brother charged with assault in estate spat

Sandusky Register Staff • Jun 2, 2014 at 6:22 PM

Jefferson Goudy Jr., 63, of the 1900 block of E. Oldgate Road, was charged with assault and domestic violence. 

Police were dispatched at about 2 p.m. to Toft Funeral Home & Crematory on Columbus Avenue, where Goudy’s sister, Catherine Terrell, 61, also of Sandusky, said she wanted to file charges against her brother.

Terrell allegedly told Goudy he was going to die, which prompted Goudy to push Terrell into a wall, a police report said. Terrell’s head struck a wall so hard, it put a large hole in the drywall. Police then set off to find Goudy, who had fled on foot. Officers then talked to his wife, who agreed to bring him to the police station as soon as she found him.

Goudy soon showed up at the police station to sign his charges, but he was released on his own recognizance because of health problems, the report said.
