Raceland man charged in stabbing

GREENUP — A 77-year-old Raceland man has been indicted in connection with the stabbing last month of another man.

A Greenup County grand jury last week returned an indictment charging William J. Bryan, of the 1400 block of Bryan Drive, with one count of first-degree assault, a Class B felony that carries a prison term of 10 to 20 years.

Bryan was charged in the July 2 knifing of Charles Coberly, according to court records.

No further information was available on the incident, which was investigated by the Raceland Police Department. However, Coberly and his wife both testified before the grand jury.

In a pair of separate indictments, the grand jury charged an 18-year-old Argillite man with stealing a golf cart and burning it, and with stealing water meters and water from the city of Greenup.

Henry Craft was charged with two counts of felony theft and one count each of theft of services, first-degree criminal mischief and third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor.

The alleged offenses occurred in March and April.

A grand jury indictment is a formal accusation of a crime and does not establish guilt.

Others named in true bills handed up last week by the grand jury were:

Gilbert L. Sims, 46, no address listed, charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy.

Michael Justin Smith, no age or address listed, charged with second-degree rape.

Harold J. Stephens, 32, of Ashland, charged with fraudulent use of a credit card and first-degree persistent felony offender.

Shawn Curtis Lowe, 31, of Raccoon, charged with first-degree drug trafficking and driving under the influence.

Gregory A. Fisher, 22, of Flatwoods, charged with three counts of second-degree rape.

Justin T. Carter, 24, of Ashland, charged with first-degree burglary.

Christopher J. Boley, 23, of Pikeville, charged with first-degree drug trafficking, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Matthew J. Boettger, 24, of Raceland, charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree persistent felony offender.

Timothy Coburn, 45, of Greenup, charged with first-degree sexual abuse.

Tracy L. Rickett, 37, no address listed, charged with theft and with first-degree persistent felony offender.

Odie L. Weaver III, 44, of Ashland, charged with five counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Chester A. Caldwell, 68, of South Shore, charged with complicity to first-degree drug trafficking.

Jeffrey Allan White, 45, of South Shore, charged two counts of trafficking in a legend drug and one count each of second-degree drug trafficking and first-degree persistent felony offender.

David C. Childers, 45, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., charged with flagrant non-support.
