Kori arrest
A Cocke County man who allegedly went to the home of his estranged wife in violation of an Order of Protection, and then shot into the home, now is in custody. Cocke County Deputy Katrina Baldwin said she went to the home of Lisa Ann Kori on North Grand Country Way in Cosby on Saturday in response to a report that Rein Kori, 53, had fired into the residence after having tried to get in the door. Mrs. Kori said she had allowed her husband to stay in the basement recently as she worked to get him into a rehabilitation program. Mrs. Kori said her husband fired into the home after he pounded on the locked door and she refused to open it. After the shot was fired, the suspect was told to leave by his son Anthony. He then reportedly left and drove his work van through the locked gate, traveling to the home of the neighbor. Officer Baldwin along with Deputy Sgt. Brian Holt found the suspect at the neighboring home. Kori was seen handing a firearm to the neighbor and he also was in possession of a box cutter. In addition, a 22 caliber pistol was found in the Kori vehicle, along with beer. Sgt. Holt said he recovered a spent round on the inside of the home and a spent casing on the porch, outside the door. Rein Kori now is in custody on charges of reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon, violation of an Order of Protection, aggravated domestic assault and possession of a firearm while under the influence.
