A Carey man jailed for two attempted murders faces additional charges for allegedly having a “homemade metal shank” inside the Hancock County jail, according to a grand jury indictment.

Chad J. Howard, 37, was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday for possession of a deadly weapon while under detention, a second-degree felony, and abduction, a third-degree felony, for an alleged June 6 incident involving another inmate.

Howard was indicted earlier this month on two counts of attempted murder, both first-degree felonies; aggravated burglary, a first-degree felony; and abduction, a third-degree felony, for an alleged June 2 incident involving his wife and a child.

There was a standoff between Howard and the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office at a rural McComb address.

Howard had a knife with him. When Howard was indicted on those charges, Hancock County Prosecutor Phil Riegle declined to specify how the knife was used, but implied it was used in one of the attempted murder offenses but not the other.

In other indictments, Jeremiah M. Dauterman, 34, of Fostoria, is charged with abduction, a third-degree felony, and domestic violence, a first-degree misdemeanor, for an alleged incident May 22 in Union Township.

Richard S. Perrone Jr., 27, of Findlay, was charged with breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony, for an alleged incident May 11 at Lucky’s Tavern on Crystal Avenue in Findlay.

Jason D. Ramey, 48, of Findlay, was indicted for harassment with a bodily substance, a fifth-degree felony, for an alleged incident May 2 involving a Findlay police officer.

Jermaine L. Jones, 31, of Findlay, faces two fourth-degree felony OVI charges for allegedly driving drunk on April 19 in Findlay. One of the charges notes that he has three prior convictions in the past 10 years, and the other lists his alleged blood alcohol concentration as .193.

Kimberly K. Dennard, 54, whose address is listed as the Allen County jail, was indicted on three meth-related charges.

She is charged with two counts of aggravated possession of drugs, one fifth-degree felony and one third-degree felony, for alleged methamphetamine possession in December 2018 in Findlay; and for illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, a third-degree felony, for allegedly possessing one or more chemicals that could be used to make meth.

Shane M. Doyle, 40, of Findlay, was indicted for aggravated possession of drugs, a fifth-degree felony, for allegedly possessing methamphetamine on March 24 in Findlay.

Russell C. Monroe, 42, of Findlay, faces a fifth-degree felony charge for aggravated possession of drugs for allegedly having methamphetamine on Feb. 15 in Findlay.
