Murder, drugs and theft among indictments

Sept. 25, 2013 —

Murder, drugs, identity theft, intimidation and burglary were among nine indictments handed down by a Carter County grand jury on Sept. 13.

Ricky D. Flannery, 49, of Olive Hill, was indicted on the capital offense of murder and operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

According to the indictment, Flannery showed “extreme indifference to human life” when he operated the vehicle under the influence.

This is the second DUI for Flannery, a Class B misdemeanor. On Aug. 20, Flannery drove while allegedly intoxicated, leading to the death of Allen Tabor, 54, also of Olive Hill.

Tabor was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on KY174 near Olive Hill. He was a retired Morehead State University employee.

Deputy Sheriff Greg Gilliam investigated the accident and presented the case to the grand jury. He said blood tests were conducted on Flannery the day of the crash, but the results were not going to be released until the investigation is complete.

If convicted, Flannery could face life in prison.

Also indicted were:

Graig Horton, 31, of Grayson, one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, a Class B felony, and one count of theft of identity, a Class D felony.

Billy Barker, 48, of Grayson, one count of intimidating a participant in a legal process, a Class D felony, by threatening Carter County Circuit Judge Rebecca Phillips with physical harm between Feb. 1 and Aug. 9 of this year.

Jerry L. Barido, 34, of Olive Hill, one count of theft by unlawful taking over $500, a Class D felony. Barido was also indicted on one count of first degree being a persistent felony offender, a Class B felony.

Patricia Rabourn, 64, of Olive Hill, on one count of theft by deception, under $10,000, a Class D felony.

David A Kimmel, Jr., 28 and Devon N. Kimmel, 23, both of Grayson, were indicted on one count of theft by unlawful taking over $500, a Class D felony.

Devon Kimmel was also charged with second degree persistent felony offense, while convicted of a prior felony, a Class C felony. David Kimmel was also charged with first degree persistent felony offense, while convicted of two prior felonies, a Class B felony.

Larry L. Gannon, 47, and Brian K. Elliott, 43, both of Grayson, were indicted on one count of second degree burglary, a Class C felony.
