A man from Shell Knob has been charged with burglary, deviate sexual assault, forcible sodomy and domestic assault.
Authorities in Stone County say Lance David Blanchette, 43, allegedly broke into his estranged wife's home at 530 County Line Road, which is on the Stone/Barry County line, on September 26th.
According to the probable cause statement, Blanchette grabbed the woman, threw her on a bed and sexually assaulted her.
Blanchette, who had been texting the woman asking if she wanted to have sex, allegedly admitted to authorities that he broke into the house and threw the woman on the bed, but said he only removed her pajama bottoms to "view a tattoo."
Blanchette, who is being held on a $50,000 cash only bond, is due back in court on November 6th.
