Jail inmate indicted on assault

An Ironton man already facing arson and other charges was indicted on new charges this week stemming from an incident that took place at the Lawrence County Jail.

A Lawrence County grand jury returned two counts of fourth-degree felony assault on a peace officer against Todd Terkhorn, 24, of 1747 Kevin St.
