On the Record

Circuit Court

PARKERSBURG — The Wood County Circuit Court heard the following cases on March 11 and 12.

Monday

* Nichole Danielle Kelley, 26, in custody at the North Central Regional Jail, waived extradition to Athens County, Ohio, on a warrant for failure to appear on charges of tampering with evidence and possession of heroin. However, Judge Robert Waters ruled she is not to be released until she completes her sentence on a charge of child neglect creating substantial risk of injury.

According to court records, Kelley was sentenced Aug. 16, 2018, to two consecutive six-month jail terms after previously pleading guilty to two misdemeanor counts of child neglect. They were lesser included offenses of the felony charges of child neglect creating risk of injury on which she was indicted.

Despite court records indicating Waters ordered her West Virginia sentence to be completed first, Kelley was extradited to Ohio on Aug. 20 and released from the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail on a personal recognizance bond the next day.

She was arrested in Wood County on Feb. 2 and has been in the North Central Regional Jail since then.

On Monday, Waters sentenced her to time served on the first count of child neglect and six months on the second count, with credit for 38 days served.

* Roy Allen Spellman Jr., 39, of Parkersburg, was sentenced by Waters to six to nine years in prison on charges of identity theft and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, forgery or deception. The judge then suspended the sentence for three years of probation, with up to 120 days in the regional jail as directed by the probation officer.

* Eric Shawn Owens, 39, in custody at the regional jail, waived extradition to Washington County on a charge of domestic battery.

* Waters ordered a $10,000 bond revoked on Melissa Stevens, 40, of Williamstown, after she tested positive for drugs. Stevens pleaded guilty in January to a charge of conspiracy to commit delivery of a controlled substance. The judge ordered Stevens held at the regional jail until her sentencing at 9:30 a.m. March 26.

* The trial for Brandon Stover, 35, in custody at the regional jail, was scheduled for March 19.

In Judge J.D. Beane’s Court:

* Michael Miller, 43, 2602 11 Ave., Parkersburg, was found guilty to destruction of property and was sentenced to one year at the North Central Regional Jail with two days credit. He was also ordered to pay $276,000 in restitution to the victim.

Tuesday

* Paul E. Bibbee II, 53, in custody, pleaded guilty to an information charge of failure to register and had his $30,000 bond altered from a cash bond to a surety bond. The court agreed to change it to a personal recognizance bond if a treatment bed is available. He will be sentenced on May 16.

In Judge Jason Wharton’s Court:

* Derek Cole Fought, 32, 205 State Route 124, Hockingport, Ohio, was found guilty of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. He was sentenced to three years probation with 30 days of incarceration, due to positive drug screens during the presentence investigation report.
