No charges will be filed after an altercation between the sister of a murdered Cocke County teen and the father of the man serving time for killing her.
Megan Maxwell was missing for more than a year before her remains were finally found by a hunter in November 2010. Since then, Jeffery Lee Stock took a "best interest" plea deal for her murder and is behind bars. This week, his father, Terry Stock, was sentenced to probation for being an accessory after the fact.
On Tuesday, Maxwell's sister, Stephanie, approached Terry Stock at a Newport gas station. According to the incident report, Maxwell told police that she stopped to "confront" Stock about his involvement with Megan's murder.
She said the argument became heated and she hit Stock with a closed fist. She said he hit her back, injuring her lips. She also admitted to standing behind Stock's vehicle so he couldn't leave the parking lot. Maxwell told officers that Stock bumped into her with his rear bumper as he backed out to leave.
Stock said that Maxwell pulled up the gas pumps and "started cussing him and then assaulting him." He admitted he struck her once with a closed fist to "get her off of him," then left that gas station to go to another location to call police.
Maxwell could have been charged with assault, but a hand-written note on the incident report states that Stock did not want to press charges.
