Wood County court dismisses kidnapping indictments

PARKERSBURG — Indictments for kidnapping against two people were dismissed Friday in Wood County Circuit Court.

According to the dismissal order, the indictment charging Quincy Alex Lewis, 32, and Glennell Marie Dorsett, 37, has been dismissed on a motion from the state because the state has not been able to locate the alleged victim.

“Without reasonable testimony the state does not believe sufficient evidence exists to support a felony conviction under any of the charges set forth in the indictment,” the order stated.

Judge Jason Wharton signed the order.

Lewis and Dorsett were indicted by the September 2017 grand jury on two counts each of kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping in July.

According to police reports at the time, a video posted on social media showed Lewis and a female identified as Dorsett approach the victim in Parkersburg. They confronted the victim and pulled the victim to the ground by her hair and then kicked her in the face, police said. The arrested demanded the victim to leave the business and get into Lewis’ vehicle, police said.

In other hearings Friday:

* Misty Louise McCloy, 41, 1609 Spring St., Parkersburg, entered a plea agreement to plead guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit delivery of a controlled substance. Judge J.D. Beane set sentencing for 2:30 p.m. Jan. 16.
