NORWICH – A Chenango County grand jury convened Wednesday and opted to indict eight individuals on felony level charges relating to assault, heroin, and burglary.
• Joseph P. Hughes, Joseph C. Hughes, and Nicholas R. Hughes were indicted on the charges of assault in the first degree, a class B felony; and assault in the second degree, a class C felony.
The trio stands accused of striking a man multiple times on Silver Street in June. Per the indictment, it’s alleged that they acted with a depraved indifference to human life, and created a grave risk of death that caused serious physical injury to the victim.
It was said the victim received multiple face and skull fractures, as well as a brain bleed.
• Two women, Faziem E. Jenkins and Tiffany M. Vallance, face the class C felony charge of burglary in the second degree.
