Myles Stout, the Signal Mountain man who's free on bond while awaiting sentencing for reckless homicide in the death of an 18-year-old, now has a protective order against him requested by a local woman.
Alexandra Ambrosetti filed the order seeking to keep Stout from being near her. She claims her home was broken into last week and Stout was in her room while she was out of the country on a mission trip.
Stout and his family previously have declined comments to the media through their attorneys.
In the document, filed Monday in Hamilton County Chancery Court, Ambrosetti alleges that Stout called her at 2 a.m. the day she returned and left a message saying "he was glad I was home from my trip and hoped I had a good time." She wrote that she didn't know how Stout knew that she had left or returned.
A hearing is scheduled in Chancery Court on Oct. 4 to review the protective order's restraints. There is no record of criminal charges being filed in connection with Ambrosetti's allegations.
On Sept. 11, a jury found Stout guilty of reckless homicide in the death of Myles Compton. The men were at a friend's home in East Brainerd when Stout pointed a gun at Compton and pulled the trigger. He said he thought the weapon was unloaded.
Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 5.
