Letcher Co. grand jury indicts Bell Co. official

A Letcher County Grand Jury has indicted two men, one of them a Bell County constable, on charges of unlawful imprisonment.

The grand jury says Bell County Constable James D. Fuson, 38, of Limestone Branch Road in Ingram, acted outside of his jurisdiction when he arrested George Napier at his Letcher County home under a warrant issued in Bell County and transported him to Bell County on July 25, 2008.

Donald King, 54, of HC 88, Box 502 at Fourmile was also charged with complicity in the case.

Kentucky State Police Detective Randy Combs testified in the case.
