Two charged with home invasion

By Wayne Gates –

Two people are facing multiple felony charges after allegedly invading a home, holding the occupant hostage and then stealing drugs.
Clell Swinney, 31 of Livingston, KY is charged with multiple first degree felony counts, including Aggravated Robbery, Aggravated Burglary (two counts), and Kidnapping.
He is also charged with Abduction, a third degree felony, and Theft of Drugs, a fourth degree felony.
Swinney is also facing an additional three years on all charges because he is accused of possessing a firearm at the time of the alleged offenses.
Stephanie Turner, 31 of Aberdeen is also facing the same charges as Swinney.
“The allegation is that they came into a residence in July of 2015 and they found a woman cleaning inside the home.  They asked for the homeowner by name and found out he wasn’t home and they left.  Then they returned to the house and there was some force exerted against her and her liberty was restrained,” said Brown County Prosecutor Zac Corbin.
Corbin said the two then took some medication the victim had as well as some items from the home.
He said that Swinney was eventually caught because he made one mistake.
“The witness did recall that the male was smoking a cigarette and he threw his cigarette butt in the trash can.  That cigarette butt yielded DNA evidence which was linked to Clell Swinney,” Corbin said.
Swinney is currently in prison in Kentucky on Aggravated Robbery charges in a separate incident.
Corbin said that Turner was also charged because of prior mistakes.
“We knew what kind of vehicle they were driving and we were able to link that vehicle to Ms. Turner through some traffic citations in Kentucky,” he said.
“Detective Rick Haney at the Brown County Sheriff’s Office worked the case diligently.  Determining the role of Ms. Turner in this incident took a lot of legwork on the part of the sheriff’s office.”
Corbin said that police are still looking for Turner.
“She is still at large.  Anyone who knows of her whereabouts is asked to contact local law enforcement.”
Swinney and Turner were indicted by a Brown County Grand Jury on February 23.
Other individuals indicted include Amy Stewart, 39 of Mt. Orab.
Stewart is accused of seven counts of fifth degree felony Forgery, three counts of fifth degree felony Identity Fraud and three counts of first degree misdemeanor Petty Theft.
Clyde Parker, III, 30 of New Richmond, is charged with Possession of Heroin, a fifth degree felony.
Joshua McIntosh, 35 of Georgetown, is charged with three counts of Trafficking in Heroin.  All three counts are fifth degree felonies.
Jennifer Carrier, 30 of Waco, KY, is charged with Failure to Comply with an Order of Signal of a Police Officer, a third degree felony.
An indictment means that an individual has been charged with a crime.  It is not a finding or admission of guilt.
