A Columbia man was accused of biting off part of another person’s ear late last week.
Martino Wilson, 19, was charged with first-degree assault for the incident.
Boone County deputies said Wilson got into a fight with another person on Friday. They both fell down a flight of stairs during the fight.
After landing on the ground, Wilson reportedly punched the victim in the head before biting part of the victim’s ear off.
A court date had not yet been set as of Tuesday night.
