Trial dates set in shooting, stabbing cases

RICHMOND — Trial dates for two first-degree assault cases were set Thursday in Madison Circuit Court.

Eldon L. Washington, 26, who is accused of shooting a woman in June, is scheduled to stand trial March 25. Washington also faces three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment and one count each of first-degree burglary, convicted felon in possession of a handgun and tampering with physical evidence.

Both the assault and burglary charges are Class B felonies, which each carry a sentencing range of 10 to 20 years in prison.

The shooting occurred June 24 in the 700 block of Sizemore Drive, according to a Richmond police news release. Officers responded to a call about shots fired at the residence, and when they arrived, they reported finding a 22-year-old woman on the bathroom floor with a gunshot wound.

Another woman who lived at the apartment told police someone had tried to kick open her front door, but then he broke out the front living-room window. Gunshots were fired and another woman in the apartment was hit.

The apartment’s resident was able to identify Washington as being involved with the shooting, according to the RPD.

Riddell stabbing case

Misty Riddell, 20, also appeared in court Thursday. She is charged with stabbing another woman in April, and her three-day trial was set for May 20.

Riddell’s case originally was to be tried Sept. 17, but it was pushed back to allow more time for the attorneys to prepare.

Riddell is accused of stabbing an 18-year-old woman in the chest and abdomen area and her left arm, according to a Richmond police news release. The victim underwent surgery at the University of Kentucky Medical Center and has since recovered.

Prosecutors have alleged that a dispute over a man led to the stabbing.
