CORNING, AR - The son of Corning's police chief has pleaded innocent to beating a man with a baseball bat.

Donald Groning, 38, of Corning, son of Corning Police Chief Jim E. Groning, was arrested in April on charges of first-degree battery and tampering with evidence.  The younger Groning was jailed in the Clay County jail on a $250,000 bond.

Donald Groning's mother, 60-year-old Wanda Emmons was jailed on charges of hindering apprehension, tampering with evidence and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  Emmons was released on a $15,000 bond.

Emmons also pleaded innocent yesterday.

Circuit Court Judge Ralph Wilson lowered Donald Groning's bond to $75,000.  Wilson set an arraignment date of August 31 for Emmons and Donald Groning, and scheduled a trial for October 3-5.
