Cuyahoga County prosecutors have filed charges of felonious assault and abduction against William Fields, 50.
Everetts was punched several times and injured.
The Rev. Bill O’Donnell has previously told Fox 8 that Fields has worked off and on for the parish for many years, helping to distribute meals. They believe he became irate after he learned his paycheck would start coming from Catholic Charities and not St. Augustine Parish.
“Fields had physically threatened Doris while he was on the job with Catholic Charities,” said Atty. Tom Merriman, who represents Everetts. “Two weeks later, Fields beat her unconscious while working for Catholic Charities. Someone in management should have taken action to prevent this.”
Fields is scheduled to be in court July 8 to face the charges.
Court records in Cuyahoga County show Fields has previously been indicted for cases including drug charges and more since the late 1990s.
