A Richmond pair, arrested in May after various drugs and a little black book of prices were found in their Mt. Rushmore Drive home, has been indicted by a Madison County grand jury on a laundry list of charges.

Haylie Keeling, 20, and Kenneth Slaughter, 27, are charged with first-degree controlled substance trafficking (more than four grams cocaine), a class C felony punishable by five to 10 years, controlled substance trafficking within 1,000 feet of a school, class D felony punishable by one to five years, as well as marijuana trafficking (less than 8 ounces), third-degree controlled substance trafficking (more than 20 dosage units but less than 120) and drug paraphernalia possession, the rest which are class A misdemeanors punishable by up to one year in jail. Keeling also faces second-degree controlled substance possession.

According to a past Register story, Keeling and Slaughter were arrested after a May 20 search warrant was executed at their home, less than 1,000 feet from Daniel Boone Elementary. There, officers found 54 grams of cocaine, 81 Xanax bars, 105 grams of marijuana and 4.5 grams mushrooms. There was also a black notebook that had Keeling's name inside that lists prices and weights of drug transactions, along with several marijuana pipes, grinders, baggies, rolled dollar bills with cocaine residue and a steel cocaine press.

Keeling was released from the Madison County Detention Center on May 31, while Slaughter remains lodged, online jail records state.
