ELKINS -A 19-year-old Dailey man who was behind the wheel in a fatal wreck in June was one of 27 individuals indicted by a Randolph County grand jury in circuit court Monday.

Cole Alexander Edmond was indicted on one felony count of driving under the influence causing death.

He was also indicted on two counts of driving under the influence causing injury; one count of driving under the influence with minors in the vehicle; one count of carrying a deadly weapon; one count of contributing to the delinquency of a child; one count of reckless driving; one count of operating a motor vehicle exceeding speed limitations; and one count of driving on the wrong side of the roadway, all misdemeanors.

Edmond was indicted for his alleged role in the death of Timothy Roger "Bo" Hornick, 15, of Mill Creek.

Edmond was the driver of the Chevrolet Cavalier involved in a June 20 two-vehicle accident which resulted in Hornick's death. The wreck happened at about 2:30 p.m. as the Cavalier was traveling south on Route 219 near Tygarts Valley High School.

According to previous reports, the Cavalier ran off Route 219 on the right side before veering back on the road, crossing the center line, and striking a north-bound Dodge pickup truck driven by Devlin Cate. The Cavalier then ran off the road on the left side, traveled down an embankment and came to rest next to a pond.

The criminal complaint in the Randolph County Magistrate Clerk's office stated Edmond had allegedly been drinking vodka prior to the wreck.

Also indicted Monday was an Elkins couple who were arrested in 2012 after a 5-year-old boy in their care nearly died from allegedly being forced to swallow more than a tablespoon of pepper.

Tina Marie Carver, 38, was indicted on one felony count of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury.

Larry Neil Carver, 41, was indicted on one felony count of child neglect resulting in serious bodily injury.

According to court documents, officials received a 911 call March 14, 2012 about "a child choking on a teaspoon of pepper."

The boy was transported to Davis Memorial Hospital and was found to be in full respiratory distress. He was then flown by HealthNet helicopter to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, where he went into full respiratory failure, according to police reports.

Livesaving measures were administered to him six times, and he was eventually placed on life support in the Pediatrics Intensive Care unit of Ruby Memorial, according to court

documents.

Once the child's condition stabilized, he was interviewed by Alyson Scott of the state Department of Health & Human Resources' Child Protective Services. He told her that "Mommy put pepper" in his mouth, and that he knocked the first spoonful of pepper out of her hand before she forced the second spoonful in his mouth, according to the police report.

Ruby Memorial's Dr. William D. Patten is quoted in the police report as saying that more than a tablespoonful of pepper was in the boy's stomach and lungs, and he had to be "suctioned multiple times." The police report states that, according to medical professionals, the boy could not have ingested that large of an amount on his own.
