Grand jury indicts trio of robbery suspects

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, November 9, 2013

Two men and a woman arrested in connection with the August robbery and assault of a Boonsville man have been indicted on multiple felony charges.

David Noah Simmons, 43, of Weatherford and Donald Walton, 48, of Poolville were indicted last week by a Wise County grand jury for burglary of a habitation, aggravated robbery and firearm smuggling (three or more).

Jennifer Lynn Perkinson, 45, of Weatherford was indicted for aggravated robbery. All three remain in the Wise County Jail awaiting trial.

The three are accused of binding and beating 73-year-old Jerry Thetford at his Boonsville home Aug. 26. Just after 11 that night, a man matching Walton’s description allegedly knocked on the door of Thetford’s home. Leaning on a crutch, the man asked for Thetford’s help. Allegedly Walton and another suspect then proceeded to strike Thetford in the head multiple times, tie up his hands and toss him into the yard before burglarizing his home.

FLEEING SUSPECT INDICTED

A Fort Worth man accused of trying to outrun law enforcement with four children in the vehicle has also been indicted.

Octavio Fernandez Jr., 31, refused to stop for law enforcement the night of Aug. 25 after a 911 caller reported a potential domestic disturbance occurring inside Fernandez’ traveling vehicle. He was northbound on U.S. 81/287 between Decatur and Rhome.

After initially stopping for police, he then sped off. Rhome officer Chance Garrett shot out one of the tires on Fernandez’ vehicle.

He was indicted on two counts of evading arrest/detention with a vehicle and four counts of abandon/endanger child criminal negligence. He remains in the Wise County Jail.
