Kimberly Koval the mother of police shooting suspect Malik Koval and her other son Marcus Maseda were arrested and charged with obstruction of justice; assault and battery on a police officer; and interfering with the duties of a police officer. Both were arraigned in Falmouth District Court Monday.
In court today the judge raised both suspects' bail from $5,000 each to $7,500 each. Prosecutors had requested bail of $25,000 each due to the nature of the crime.
The prosecution alleges that both tried to interfere with officers as they were trying to restrain Malik Koval. It is alleged that both at one point allegedly attacked and jumped on one of the officers.
Their defense attorney denied the prosecution's account and asserted that the mother Kimberly Koval tried to hold her son down and pushed the gun away while police were responding.
In the courtroom there was a strong turnout by several members of the Falmouth Police Department, including Police Chief Ed Dunne.
