Indictments issued for malicious wounding

SoVaNow.com / February 19, 2014
A Mecklenburg County grand jury handed down eight indictments on Feb. 17, including against three individuals for malicious wounding.

Mary Katherine Sheldon was charged with the malicious wounding of Savannah Lynn Hahnel. Quameisha Ferrell was charged with the malicious wounding of Harold Brathwaite, and Akeem Olajawon Daniel was charged with malicious wounding of Natasha N. Pettus.

In other indictments, Judith Hensley Coleman was charged with felony auto theft for allegedly driving the vehicle of Nicolette Hall without consent, and Nicholas Dale Clayton was separately charged with felony auto theft for allegedly stealing a motor vehicle belonging to Donna D. Wall.

Two individuals were charged with theft offenses from area businesses, including Larry Dennis Satterfield who was charged with felony theft from Walmart and Tamela R. Jessup who was charged with felony theft from Dollar General.

Robert Todd Jr. was charged with breaking and entering into the dwelling of Aaron Lynn Hall, and Johnny S. Tith was charged with possession with intent to sell marijuana, of less than 5 pounds.

Indictments are not findings of guilt, but rather a determination that sufficient evidence exists to bring the cases to trial.
