Kernersville man to move despite protective order


    KERNERSVILLE, NC (AP) — A Forsyth County judge who granted a
    protective order against Kernersville man has now agreed to let him
    move in next door to his estranged wife.

    The Winston-Salem Journal reported Thursday that Judy Masters
    obtained a yearlong protective order against her husband after he
    instigated a three-hour standoff with Kernersville police at their
    home on June 16.

    Last week, District Judge William Graham gave permission for
    Thomas Mack Masters to move into a rental house the couple owns
    next door to their primary residence.

    Judy Masters said she is afraid of her husband, but Thomas Mack
    Masters denies that he has threatened his wife or tried to hurt

    Judy Masters’ attorney, Kristin Kelly, did not object to the
    move during the hearing before Graham.
