Mon County indictments include murder, attempted murder

Arraignments began this week in Monongalia County Circuit Court for those indicted during the grand jury session earlier this month on May 15 – 17. 

May’s grand jury delivered 126 indictments against 118 individuals for crimes ranging from shoplifting and fraud to malicious assault and murder. An indictment is not a determination of guilt or innocence, it means the defendants have been formally accused of a crime. All of the individuals indicted are considered innocent until proven guilty. 

The most common charges involve drug crimes, domestic abuse and theft-related crimes such as robbery, burglary, embezzlement and larceny. 

Texas man Jonathan Ramirez, accused of murdering 26-year-old Jacob Lough in his Milford Street apartment on Jan. 16, was among those indicted. In addition to a first-degree murder charge for the stabbing death of Lough, Ramirez is facing a burglary charge for breaking into the victim’s residence and grand larceny for stealing Lough’s vehicle after the murder.  

Two men allegedly involved in a robbery and shooting on Water Street in September 2023 were also formally charged by the grand jury. Harry Tucker and Bishop Reese face charges of robbery in the first degree and conspiracy to commit a felony. 

Tucker was also charged with five counts of wanton endangerment of a firearm and one count of attempted first degree murder. A male victim was taken to the hospital for gunshot wounds to the back and hands but survived the encounter. 

Eight individuals said to be involved in a multi-location drug conspiracy also made the indictment list with various charges. Damir A. Swann aka “Henny,” Juan M. Patterson, Robert J. Crawford aka “A1,” and Darnell R. Spearman aka “Streets,” were each charged with possession with intent to distribute controlled substances including fentanyl, methamphetamine and cocaine. 

Jajuan A. Odum aka “Mar Mar,” Kenietha S. Cason aka “Ken,” Shdiamond Adams and Emily N. McHenry were charged with possession with intent to distribute fentanyl. 

All involved, including Rebekah R. Feicht, were charged with conspiracy to commit a felony drug crime. 

An employee of Akkary Surgery Center and Skinsational Medspa, Krystal Gail Kimble, is facing three counts of embezzlement and one count of falsifying accounts. According to the indictment, Kimble took thousands of dollars from patients under the guise that she would schedule procedures, but would only deposit a portion of the funds, if that, to the business and keep the rest for personal use. 

Shane Michael Wiles was charged with three counts of uttering, three counts of forgery, and one count of obtaining money by false pretenses for presenting forged checks at a local sporting goods retailer. He later pawned some of the goods purchased with the checks including two compound bows, redline bow sights, and an archery release.
