PERRY -- A Houston County grand jury has indicted a Byron woman on a charge of exploitation of an elderly person.
Alicia Ferguson, 27, allegedly used the finances of a Warner Robins woman to buy the woman a car, but then Ferguson registered the car under her own name and kept it for herself, the indictment stated.
Ferguson persuaded the woman to buy the car on the premise that Ferguson could drive the woman where she needed to go, according to the indictment.
Others indicted Tuesday include:
Charles Jeffery Kersey Jr., 23, on two counts of aggravated assault, one count of battery and one count of false imprisonment for a June 9 attack on a woman in her Houston County home.
Kersey is accused of threatening to blind the woman as he came at her with a multi-tool with its knife blade extended and striking her with a glass ashtray, according to the indictment.
