MUNCIE — A central Indiana man accused of holding three people against their will and attacking one of them with a nail gun has been convicted of 11 felony charges.
A Delaware County jury found 57-year-old Robert A. Walton of Muncie guilty Wednesday of criminal confinement, battery with a deadly weapon and other charges.
The Star Press reports Walton and a co-defendant were accused of holding two women and a man against their will in a Muncie building in August 2016.
Walton allegedly used a nail gun “to shoot staples/nails” into the legs of a 46-year-old woman, her abdomen, torso and one of her feet.
His co-defendant, 36-year-old Benitez L. “Benny” McCullum is set to stand trial in January. He’s accused of hitting the male victim in the head with a shovel.
