A dozen Central Illinois residents were indicted last week on various criminal charges. Included is Taylorville resident Dennis Adams, who was indicted on charges of attempted 1st degree murder after an incident this past summer. Police say Adams shot his wife three times with a .22 caliber pistol during a domestic violence incident on August 19th. Jolene Adams was hospitalized but survived the alleged attack.
Charges against others include burglary, possession of stolen propter, forgery, trespassing, and possession of a controlled substance.
Additionally, Donald Riggs of Shelbyville was charged with aggravated battery after he allegedly spit on a police officer on October 13.
