Grand jury to hear jail knife case

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        HAMILTON — A Butler County Jail inmate who allegedly held a makeshift knife to the throat of a guard will face a grand jury on charges of attempted murder, abduction and possession of weapons in a detention center.

        Judge John Rosmarin of Hamilton County Municipal Court ruled Tuesday there was enough evidence to send Thomas Kelly's case to a Butler County grand jury.

        Mr. Kelly, 25, of Hamilton, is accused of attacking Corrections Officer Jamy Fultz with a shank as she was escorting him from his cell around 10:15 p.m. Feb. 20.

        He was holding the shank to Ms. Fultz's throat when a paramedic disarmed him and forced him to release her, police said.

        Judge Rosmarin ordered Mr. Kelly's bail to be continued at $250,000.

        On Feb. 24, Mr. Kelly was sentenced to nine years in prison on charges of rape, abduction and four counts of illegal weapons possession.
