Grand Jury Indictments

By  | 

Fifty-nine people were indicted Friday by the Wood County Grand Jury, including three people on murder and attempted murder charges.

The Wood County Grand Jury has indicted a Vienna man for the murder of his girlfriend last spring.

Matthew Dickel was charged with murder and wanton endangerment with a firearm. He telephoned 9-1-1 in May saying he had shot 22-year-old Leanda Atkinson in the head.

Wood County prosecutor Ginny Conley says the wanton endangerment charge was added because a child was present in the Dickel home when the shooting occurred.

The grand jury also indicted Delores Diane Correll and Brian Scott France for arson at a Parkersburg home in June. Both were charged on arson-related charges, and France was indicted for attempted murder.
