Piner man faces up to 45 years

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        COVINGTON — A Piner man was indicted by a Kenton County grand jury Friday on a charge of attempted murder and five counts of wanton endangerment.

        Layne O. Catron of the 15000 block of Carlisle Road is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center on $100,000 cash bond. He will be arraigned at 11 a.m. June 6 in Kenton County Circuit Court. If convicted of all the charges, he could face 45 years in prison.

        Kenton County Police say during Easter weekend Mr. Catron, 36 at the time, fired shots at a vehicle occupied by his wife, the couple's two children, ages 9 and 11, and three other adults. No one was injured.

        Mr. Catron barricaded himself in the home afterward and Kenton County Police called a neighboring county's SWAT team. After a five-hour standoff, he surrendered.
       

Stabbing allegedly followed fight over TV

               COVINGTON — Prosecutors say an argument over a fact in a war documentary on television led to a fatal stabbing in Covington earlier this year.

        Pasquale Rejrat, age and address not available, was indicted by a Kenton County grand jury Friday on a charge of manslaughter in the first degree. It is punishable by 10-20 years in prison.

        Covington Police say he stabbed Dennis Lee Vodde, 50, on March 24 in an apartment in the 1800 block of Madison Avenue.

        Mr. Rejrat is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center on no bond. He will be arraigned at 11 a.m. June 6.
