Two men are charged with second-degree assault for the early Saturday beating of a northern Newton County campground owner.
Deputies were summoned to the 5300 block of Courtney Lane near Joplin at 1:42 a.m. when the owner of Holly Haven Campground reported that two men had assaulted him with a blunt object in his residence and then returned to the campground.
After a search of several trailers, deputies found and arrested Corey Alan Marshall, 28 of Webb City, and Thomas Phillip Millirons, 24 of Milo.
Both are held in the Newton County Jail on a $25,000 surety bond.
Charges are still under review by the prosecutor after a couple of weekend incidents.
A deputy observed a vehicle parked along the side of Castle Drive near Joplin at 6:44 a.m. Saturday and when he stopped to check he reported finding a 29-year-old Carthage woman and a 28-year-old Joplin man undressed in the back seat.
Tabitha Nadine Reyes provided a false name and had no identification, but when she got on the phone with her mother the deputy talked to the mom who provided her real name and advised that her daughter was on probation. Dispatch then advised she had an outstanding Jasper County warrant for forging checks.

A glass pipe was found on Reyes when she was arrested, and deputies reported a search of the vehicle turned up a pouch with digital scales and bags with methamphetamine residue along with a flashlight that contained two bags with marijuana.

She was arrested but a count of possession of drug paraphernalia is pending. The man was not arrested.

A charge of first-degree trespassing is also still under review for a 33-year-old Neosho man.

The owner of a vacant home on Pogue Avenue at Stella went in to do some painting Saturday and found a half-clothed man inside. The husband kept the subject at bay until deputies could respond to the 3:10 p.m. call, and the man reported he was there to clean some burn wounds he self-inflicted a couple of weeks prior.

He was arrested, but charges are pending.
