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.
