An investigation continues after a March 6 altercation left two men injured.

Brandon Lee Ellsmore was arrested March 13 and sent to Lansing Correctional Facility, where he remains, for violating his parole after he was involved in the early March fight in the 500 block of Hickory Street in Ottawa.

Ellsmore was on parole after being convicted for his role in the 2010 stabbing death of 24-year-old Ottawa resident Paul Duane Nicholson. He had been released Aug. 30, 2013, from state prison.

Among the conditions of Ellsmore’s parole was that he not return to Franklin County, Jeremy Barclay, special assistant to the secretary/communications director at the Kansas Department of Corrections, said previously.

Ellsmore suffered non-life threatening injuries in the altercation and was treated at Coffey County Hospital and later transferred to Stormont-Vail HealthCare, Topeka, a release from the Ottawa Police Depratment said.

Another man, Dennis Kelley, 28, Ottawa, also suffered non-life threatening injuries in the Ottawa fracas. Kelley was treated at Ransom Memorial Hospital, 1301 S. Main St., Ottawa, and later transferred to Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

The two injured men told responding Ottawa police officers they had been battered by unknown suspects, according to a police report.

No charges have been brought against Ellsmore or Kelley, Stephen Hunting, Franklin County district attorney said Friday, but an investigation into the fight is ongoing.
