Court Report

WHITLEY COUNTY - A Manchester man accused of shooting and stabbing his mother multiple times in May has been indicted by a Whitley County grand jury.

On Monday, an indictment was returned by the grand jury charging Jonathan Hubbard, 37, with one count of attempted murder and three counts of theft by unlawful taking of the value of $500 or more.

Hubbard was arrested by Kentucky State Police after the victim was found by Hubbard’s stepfather in the couple’s front yard. Even with sustaining multiple injuries, the victim was able to tell police who had attacked her. Police were able to identify the victim’s vehicle which had been stolen by Hubbard at a Manchester McDonald’s. He was apprehended and arrested without incident.

Hubbard is currently being housed in the Whitley County Detention Center.

A Williamsburg man accused of striking and killing another man with his car was also indicted by the grand jury.

Ricky Vanover, 34, now faces one count of manslaughter in the second degree for an incident back in March. Vanover also faces one count of leaving the scene of an accident and two counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree.

The grand jury also indicted a Mississippi man accused of robbing a local restaurant in February before eventually leading police on a vehicle and foot pursuit.

Corearial Pratt, 33, was indicted on one charge of burglary in the third degree and one count of theft by unlawful taking of the value of less than $500 after police say he entered a Corbin Taco Bell and unlawfully took the cash register and money inside of it.

Pratt managed to flee the scene and escaped northbound on I-75 before he allegedly robbed a man at a Madison County gas station and then a homeowner, says a Kentucky State Police report. After being spotted, Pratt led police in a vehicle pursuit but eventually lost control of the vehicle and fled on foot. He was later located in a wooded area by KSP’s Aircraft branch.
