Indictments were handed down Wednesday on three high-profile cases in Custar, Pemberville and Luckey.
Thomas J. Boyer, 53, Custar, was indicted for one count of attempted murder and one count of felonious assault in the Nov. 20 shooting of William Morris, 42, Rutland.
Boyer allegedly shot Morris once in the back with a shotgun outside of Boyer's residence on Defiance Pike. Morris was working as a subcontractor for a company ultimately engaged by OneWest Bank, which had foreclosed on Boyer's residence in September. The home is to be sold at a sheriff's sale in January.
Morris was taken to University of Toledo Medical Center for treatment.
Christopher Zimmerman, 64, Pemberville, was indicted on two counts of endangering children.
The charges stem from the Sept. 8 shooting death of a dog belonging to the children's family, which lived next door to Zimmerman in the 100 block of East College Avenue. Zimmerman, who reportedly shot the dog with a .45 caliber Desert Eagle handgun after it ran onto his property, claimed the dog appeared it was going to attack him.
The indictment alleges that while having a firearm in his possession, Zimmerman did "torture or cruelly abuse" two of the children, ages 7 and 9.
Jack VanCamp, 39, Luckey, was indicted on one count of illegal manufacture of drugs and one count of illegal assembly of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.
The charges stem from an ongoing Methamphetamine investigation. On Monday, the Wood County Special Response Team, assisted by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation and Luckey Police, executed a search warrant at VanCamp's residence in the 200 block of Adams Street. Evidence of the manufacture of meth was reportedly found in the search.
VanCamp is reportedly still at-large and was previously wanted on a Wood County warrant for drug abuse.
