Grand jury indicts in abuse, pursuit cases

A couple charged with abusing their 5-year-old child and a man charged with leading police on a high-speed pursuit were among those indicted recently by the Clark County grand jury.

Marquis J. Robinson, 30, and 32-year-old Cassie M. Crowe of Dale Drive were arrested in July while their daughter was being treated at Clark Regional Medical Center. 

According to court documents, the child had a broken arm, a glucose level of less than 20 and a body temperature of 94.7. There was also evidence of previous lacerations, dehydration and malnutrition.

Robinson told Winchester Police he had used a switch days earlier to punish the child for bad behavior, including waking him up. 

Crowe said she kept the child during the day while Robinson worked. 

Police said neither sought medical attention for three days for the child.

Both were indicted Oct. 9 for first-degree assault and first-degree criminal abuse.

The grand jury also indicted a Winchester man for allegedly fleeing from sheriff’s deputies at speeds up to 100 mph in January.

Mudanar Turley, 20, of Fourth Street, was indicted on a total of 14 charges from the incident in January.

The arrest citation said a Clark County Sheriff’s deputy spotted a vehicle heading into Winchester on Lexington Road at 100 mph. 

When the driver refused to stop, Deputy Kevin Flora radioed ahead for help from Winchester Police.

The car ran a red light at the intersection with Bypass Road and continued toward downtown Winchester, before ultimately crashing into a chain link fence on Wainscott Avenue.

Three passengers were removed from the vehicle, and two others fled on foot.

The vehicle used in the pursuit was reported stolen from Fayette County.

Turley was indicted for speeding over 26 mph, disregarding a traffic control device, first-degree fleeing or evading police, first-degree wanton endangerment (six counts), third-degree criminal mischief (two counts), first-degree criminal mischief, receiving stolen property over $10,000 and leaving the scene of an accident.

The grand jury also returned the following indictments:

— Eric L. Yates and Robbie J. Clifton, trafficking in synthetic drugs (Yates), complicity to trafficking in synthetic drugs (Clifton).

— Michael D. McIntosh, first-degree criminal mischief.

— Teddy J. Jones Jr., complicity to receiving stolen property over $10,000.

Stone, third-degree burglary, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), first-degree possession of a controlled substance (heroin), first-degree possession of a controlled substance (fentanyl), possession of drug paraphernalia, second-degree persistent felony offender.

— Chase Ross, second-degree robbery.

— Benjamin F. Larson, first-degree possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).
