May 28, 2014 — An Olive Hill man has been indicted on attempted murder charges by the Carter County grand jury.
Robert A. Tackett, 47, was indicted May 9 on one count of attempted murder, a Class B felony, for shooting his wife, Lisa, in the neck on April 19.
Mrs. Tackett survived the attack. Mr. Tackett was arrested on April 21.
A warrant has not yet been served for Tackett on the indictment, which is why an arraignment date for Circuit Court has not been set. Tackett is being held in the Carter County Detention Center on a $1 million.
Darrell H. Walters, 49, of Rainville, West Virgina, was indicted on seven Class D felony charges. He faces one count of third degree assault, one count of first degree fleeing or evading a police officer, one count of receiving stolen property, and four counts of first degree wanton endangerment. Walters was also charged with operating a vehicle under the influence, a Class B misdemeanor.
Also indicted were:
Marvin Bond, 24, of Er langer, on one count of second degree escape, one count of tampering with a prisoner monitoring device, and one count of theft by unlawful taking greater than $500, all Class D felonies.
John Rogers, 53, of Olive Hill on one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, a Class B felony. He also was indicted on two Class B misdemeanor charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of a controlled substance and third degree possession of a controlled substance.
Kenneth Dillon Ratliff, 19, of Grayson, on one count of receiving stolen property over $500, a Class D felony. He also faces two Class B misdemeanor charges of operating a vehicle under the influence and without a license.
The indictment of a person by a grand jury is an accusation only. That person is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the state must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
