Two men and a woman were indicted Friday by the Laurel County grand jury on assault charges.

Charles Robert Deaton, 29, of Corbin, was indicted on charges that on Oct. 4, he beat and kicked his wife of less than two months, dragged her by the hair and a leg from the bedroom of their home to the kitchen, then cut her beneath the chin and on the ankle with a kitchen knife.

Following that, he reportedly cleaned the knife and attempted to put it in one of her hands in an alleged effort to put her fingerprints on it.

The indictment charges him with first-degree assault, tampering with physical evidence and first-degree persistent felony offense (PFO).

The PFO charge is based on a Pulaski County charge of first-degree possession of a controlled substance and two Laurel County charges, theft by unlawful taking and first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

In a separate indictment, Brandon Hutcherson, 20, of Rineyville, was charged with first-degree assault after he allegedly beat and jumped on a man named Agustin Zavala and broke his leg.

Hilda Henson (aka Hilda Westerfield), 44, of Manchester was charged with second-degree assault “upon Michelle Jordan by striking her with a bat.”

Other indictments included:

Lisa Johnson (aka Philpot), 40, of London, 54 counts of wanton endangerment after she allegedly ran into the back of a Laurel County school bus while driving under the influence of intoxicants, possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Ricky Allen, 50, of London was charged on three separate indictments.

Most recently he was charged with two counts of theft by unlawful taking and a count of criminal mischief for activity about Feb. 10. That indictment also charges him with first-degree persistent felony offense.

He was also indicted on charges allegedly committed about May 7 and May 26. Four counts of burglary, four counts of theft by unlawful taking and three counts of criminal mischief.
