PERRY -- A Houston County grand jury indicted a Warner Robins man Tuesday on charges of aggravated assault and attempted feticide.

Dontavian Dontrell Smith, 22, is accused of attacking Myresha Walker on Elberta Road in Warner Robins March 31. He allegedly kicked her in the abdomen and struck her with a tree branch, “stating his intention to terminate the pregnancy,” the indictment stated.

No other information about the alleged assault was included in the indictment. Smith was being held Tuesday in the Houston County jail without bond.

Also indicted Tuesday was Rico Martinez Pearson, 38, of Greensboro, on charges of rape and aggravated sodomy in a Feb. 13, 2013, incident in Perry. The indictment did not include details of the alleged assault.

The grand jury also handed down a 22-count indictment against a Warner Robins man charged with leading Houston County deputies on a chase after a routine traffic stop.

Most of the charges against 24-year-old Alexander Robinson were traffic related, such as fleeing and trying to elude police, driving on a suspended license, driving on the wrong side of the road and failure to yield at stop signs. He was clocked at 20 miles per hour over the speed limit.

Robinson was also indicted on one count of possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and one count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute in the May 15 incident.

• Brandon Christopher Howell, 24, of Warner Robins, on charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony. He’s accused of pointing a shotgun at two people April 13 and threatening to shoot them.
