A Ross County Grand Jury returned 19 other indictments, Friday.
A Chillicothe man has been indicted on charges of domestic violence and unlawful restraint. On April 29th, police were called to a domestic dispute in which the victim said she and her boyfriend, 29-year-old Delezli Hickman had gotten into an argument, so she left with their child.
The victim said she returned to their home to get some of her things, but Hickman took her keys so she wouldn't leave. The indictment alleges that the victim started walking from the residence and Hickman followed her in a van, pushed her into the passenger seat, and grabbed and threatened to smash her face if she left the vehicle.
The victim said Hickman drove her to get their child, but, once they arrived, she ran inside the home, locked the door, and called police.
Hickman has been indicted with misdemeanors of domestic violence and unlawful restraint. He was previously convicted of domestic violence in 2011.
The Grand Jury also indicted three people on drug-related charges. Authorities searched 467 East Water on March 16th and found 0.2 grams of heroin and $305 in cash in 26-year-old Jarrod Miles's bedroom.
If convicted, he would spend 6-12 months in prison and face a $2,500 fine.
Three days later, Chillicothe authorities searched 466 East Water Street and found scales, syringes, and 1.1 grams of heroin in the bedroom of 28-year-old Alicia Hardesty and 25-year-old James Lisle.
Both have been indicted with a fourth-degree felony of possession, which carries a penalty of 6-18 months and $5,000 in fines.
All told, the Grand Jury returned 20 indictments; 4 were open.
