A man kicked and badly injured his elderly uncle Saturday after a disagreement over lawn work in Benton. The Scott County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office on Tuesday charged 29-year old Lerome G. Segers of Sikeston with first-degree assault on a special victim. A probable-cause statement says Segers and the victim had agreed to perform lawn services for Segers’ mother, who lived in Morley. Enroute to Benton to buy fertilizer, the two men began to argue about payment for the job. When they returned to the home, Segers threw him on the ground and kicked him in the abdomen. The victim was admitted to a hospital in Sikeston for six broken ribs and bruising of the lungs. Police found Segers at his home in Sikeston, where he declined to speak with officers after being arrested. His bond was set at $10,000 with the condition he have no contact with the victim.
