Dalton’s bond was set at $200,000 cash and a pretrial date was set for May 23. Dalton is now being represented by Huntington, W.Va. attorney J. Roger Smith.

On Tuesday, the county’s grand jury indicted Dalton on charges of attempt to commit murder, first-degree felony, firearm specification; and felonious assault, second-degree felony, firearm specification.
