Man indicted over feeding tube removal
A man charged with pulling out his brotherâ€™s feeding tube heads the list of various indictments handed down by the March convening of the Pike County grand jury.
According to Commonwealthâ€™s Attorney Rick Bartley, Jonah R. Taylor, 44, of Stopover, is charged with second-degree assault of David Ferrell. The brothers were at Ferrellâ€™s residence, Bartley said, when a disagreement apparently escalated and became physical, and Taylor allegedly pulled the tube from Ferrellâ€™s stomach. He said there was no serious or lasting damage to the alleged victim.
