On Friday, 23 cases were presented, 22 were returned as indictments, and only two of those were open.
During its Friday session, the Ross County Grand Jury indicted a Chillicothe man for domestic violence (F4). According to Rick Hannan, an investigator with the Prosecutor's Office, a victim told police on July 23rd that she and 32-year-old Michael E. Tapp got into an argument after he came home late.

Tapp has a prior domestic violence conviction involving the same victim from 2005, said Hannan.
The Grand Jury also issued an indictment for aggravated burglary (F1) against a Chillicothe man. According to Hannan, police responded to a home on the 1,000-block of Akron Street following an assault on September 23rd; the victim said three people busted into his house, assaulted him, removed his pants, took $3,000 from his clothing and stole his laptop, and fled.
