A rural Muldrow couple will both have preliminary hearings on Nov. 19, a district judge decided Wednesday. Naaman Matthew Adcock, 40, and his wife, Tabitha Adcock, 31, are accused of child abuse and other charges resulting from a family incident. Naaman Adcock is charged in Sequoyah County District Court in Sallisaw with child abuse, feloniously pointing a firearm and reckless conduct with a firearm. Tabitha Adcock is charged with child endangerment - permitting abuse and reckless conduct with a firearm. Both pleaded not guilty to the charges on June 4. The charges resulted from an incident on May 27 at the couple's home north of Muldrow. Tabitha Adcock's children told sheriff's deputies that the couple had been in an argument, and Naaman Adcock first grabbed Tabitha's 5-year-old son and threw him out of their mobile home, then grabbed him by the shirt and threatened to shoot the boy. Tabitha Adcock later told investigators that she lied about the incident because she was afraid her husband would lose his job as a Fort Smith Police Officer. Naaman Adcock later resigned from that position. According to the investigator's report, Naaman Adcock became angry when his wife left the residence, and he shot holes in the mobile home's walls and ceilings. Investigators reported Naaman Adcock later admitted he had been drinking. Naaman Adcock is free on a $24,000 bond and Tabitha Adcock is free on a $14,000 bond. District Judge Larry Langley will oversee the preliminary hearings. Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
