The Dyer County Grand Jury met this week and handed down indictments for the October grand jury session.

Topping the list were Britney Jones, 26, and Charles Russell (aka. Monkey Russell), 38, 40 Holly Springs Cemetery Road, and Darren Kizziah, 21, 1534 Harris Road, Dyersburg, Tenn., who were indicted for manufacturing methamphetamine over 5 grams, initiation manufacture of methamphetamine, and four counts of aggravated child endangerment. The three were arrested on Thursday, July 26, at 40 Holly Springs Cemetery Road in the Fowlkes Community after Dyer County Sheriff's deputies found numerous items used in the production of meth at the property. There were four children asleep in the house, ages 2 months, 14 months, 6 and 7 years old and they were turned over to a relative who took them to get checked out by a doctor. Since the children were exposed to the manufacturing of methamphetamine the suspects were charged with Class A felony charges under a Tennessee statute called Haley's Law. This law raises most child-abuse charges to felonies with punishment of not less than 15 years and not more than 60 years, which is essentially a life sentence.
