A Kettle River man accused of assault after he found his wife with another man last November was sentenced Wednesday in Carlton County Court.
In February, Kailo Alton Aho, 33, pleaded guilty to a reduced count of terroristic threats as part of a plea agreement. He had many charges dismissed including pistol possession without a permit, reckless handling of a firearm, carrying a pistol under the influence, fourth-degree driving while impaired, pointing a gun at a person, fifth-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal damage to property.
Aho, who has no criminal history, received a one-year suspended prison sentence and three years supervised probation. He must complete a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources gun safety class, abstain from alcohol and he must not engage in “conduct that is deemed to be threatening or assaulting in nature,” according to Judge Dale Wolf.
The assault took place Nov. 8 after Aho returned home from deer hunting and found his wife at a neighbor’s home in bed with another man. Aho began yelling and assaulting the man, causing injury to his face and head before going home to get his father, Milton, and a loaded 9mm pistol.
Both men allegedly made threats and at one point Milton Aho held the gun with both hands and pointed it at the victim as Kailo Aho assaulted him.
Afterward, the victim’s face showed bruises and cuts and his right eye was black and blue and nearly swollen shut. Three or four shots were fired outside the house as well, but no one was shot, the complaint stated.
Milton Aho, 60, of Barnum has been charged with felony terroristic threats, felony endangering safety by discharging a firearm, possession of a pistol without a permit, misdemeanor assault and pointing a gun at a person. His case is ongoing.
