Man indicted on assault charges; victim suffered facial fractures

RICHMOND — A man police say assaulted a man and woman, sending one to the hospital with broken facial bones, was indicted last week by a Madison grand jury.

Kenneth R. Slaughter, 22, of Race Street, faces the charges of second-degree assault and harassment.

Slaughter was involved in an August altercation that injured one person and sent another to Baptist Health Richmond to be treated for broken facial bones.

The female victim told police Aug. 11 she went to visit her stepson at an apartment complex in the 600 block of Big Hill Avenue. When she arrived, a large group of people were yelling and screaming outside her stepson’s apartment, Richmond police said she told them.

After the woman told the people to be quiet, Slaughter pushed her to the ground, and she suffered minor injuries, according to the RPD report.

The father of the woman’s stepson told police he witnessed the incident and confronted Slaughter. Slaughter then punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground, the victim reported.

If convicted on both charges, Slaughter could receive a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Other indictments:

• Jeffrey W. Claypool, three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree fleeing or evading police and operating a motor vehicle while impaired (second offense). If convicted on all charges, Claypool could serve up to 10 years in prison.

• Michael W. Smith, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, theft by unlawful taking, first-degree evading police, operating a motor vehicle while impaired, possession of marijuana and driving on a suspended license. If convicted on all charges, Smith could serve a maximum of 20 years in prison.

• Christopher D. Smith, two counts of receiving stolen property, second-degree fleeing or evading police and second degree persistent felony offender. If convicted on all charges, Smith could serve up to 20 years in prison.

• Gwenivere Hart, first-degree possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

• Terrell Deshawn Moore and Jordyn P. Conner, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance.

• Millard Fillmore Cody, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

An indictment is an official statement of charges and does not imply guilt, only that grand jurors believe the state has enough evidence to prosecute.
