Anniston women charged with attacking each other

Police charged two Anniston women this week after they allegedly attacked each other.

Anniston police on Tuesday charged Danneika L. Hutchinson-Garner, 31, with domestic violence by strangulation and Rondassisha Yketta Richardson, 21, with second-degree domestic violence.

Sgt. Randy Grier said the two women got into a fight in their Anniston home early that morning when Richardson allegedly started punching Hutchinson-Garner and they fell to the floor.

Grier said Hutchinson-Garner allegedly grabbed Richardson by the neck in an attempt to get her off of her.

Then, Grier said, Richardson went outside and began hitting Hutchinson-Garner’s car with a stick. When Hutchinson-Garner tried to stop her, he said, Richardson hit her.

He said both women appeared to have marks on them from the incident, but neither of them requested medical treatment.

Both women were booked into the Calhoun County Jail, each with bond set at $15,000. As of Wednesday, Richardson remained in jail while Hutchinson-Garner was not listed as an inmate in the jail’s online roster. Both women are scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 30 for preliminary hearings.

Domestic violence by strangulation and second-degree domestic violence are both Class B felonies, each punishable by up to two decades in prison and up to a $30,000 fine.
