Male victim, 16, identified in West Liberty school shooting

Clark County indicts man in Selma Pike stabbing


Robert Walden, 47, was indicted by the Clark County grand jury for felonious assault, violating a protection order or consent agreement, domestic violence and attempted murder.

Investigators say Walden attacked a woman in her Selma Pike home on April 10, just hours after he was served a protection order and removed from the home by Clark County Sheriff's deputies that morning.

Walden somehow made his way back to the woman's home later in the afternoon, attacked her with a knife and caused serious injuries, Sheriff Gene A Kelly said.

He was arrested at the stabbing scene and is being held in the Clark County Jail on $50,000 bond. His arraignment is set for later this week.
