Four indicted for July 1 shooting

Four people have been indicted by a Lawrence County grand jury in connection with a shooting earlier this month in Mason Township.

Larry D. Salmons, 31, and James D. Stanley, 35, both of South Point, are each charged with second degree felonious assault and first degree aggravated burglary.

In addition, James H. Nance, Jr., 27, of South Point, and Shelly Turner, age and address unknown, are charged with complicity to commit felonious assault and complicity to commit aggravated burglary.

Deputies went to a home at 2576 Trace Creek-Marion Ridge Road at approximately 4:34 a.m. July 1 after receiving a call that suspects had entered a home and that the homeowners had fired shots.

Salmons, Stanley and the home owner, Douglas Radcliff, were injured in the incident and were taken to local hospitals.

A .22-caliber rifle and a .38-caliber handgun were taken as evidence.

Also, a South Point man was indicted on one count of first-degree felony rape and one count of fourth-degree felony gross sexual imposition.

Danny L. Stone, 54, is accused of having sexual conduct and sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl who is impaired due to a mental condition. The incident occurred last month.

A Huntington, W.Va. man was also indicted on a fourth-degree felony charge of receiving stolen property.

Ricky Shane Baker, 27, was arrested last month in connection with the June 12 break-in at the Freedom Independence Church in Chesapeake.

More than $11,000 of electronic equipment was stolen from the church. The property was later recovered.

The grand jury met Monday and Tuesday. They

handed down 17 indictments, including five secret non-support indictments. Teresa Moore/The Ironton Tribune
