The Ohio County Grand Jury this week indicted Robert Robertson on four counts of malicious wounding after he allegedly stabbed and shot a man while inside a Washington Avenue apartment last year.
Robertson, 52, of Wheeling, and Cleveland resident Orlando Jackson were engaged in an argument while inside the apartment on Sept. 15 when Robertson allegedly stabbed Jackson in the neck and shot him in the leg. Jackson reportedly jumped from a second story window and landed in front of the building, where a neighbor found him and pulled him inside before police arrived.
Robertson, also known as "KO," has remained in the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville since turning himself in to police days after the alleged crime. Following his indictment Monday, Robertson's bond was doubled to $1 million.
In addition to Robertson, the grand jury returned indictments Monday against the following individuals:
- Anne Vaughan, 45, of Wheeling, burglary and conspiracy.
