CHENANGO COUNTY – The next Chenango County Grand Jury may face a high profile responsibility as two infamous cases have the potential of appearing before them.
The next grand jury is scheduled to appear July 25.
One case that may appear is George Ford Jr., 42, of Piscataway, N.J., who has been arrested for first degree reckless endangerment following an investigation by the Chenango County Sheriff’s Office into an incident that left Shyanne A. Somers, 12, South Otselic, dead.
“There is great anticipation that he will be indicted on several other counts, the family has told me that police have consulted with them and display an intent to file for murder charges,” said Ford’s Attorney Randel Scharf yesterday.
Peter M. Wlasiuk, 38, also represented by Sharf is scheduled to appear for grand jury indictment this month as a result of the court throwing out his prior indictment.
