    Law Enforcement Investigate Assaults and Theft

    By Sue Caldwell, Reporter
    A 30-year-old Annville man, Venoy Finley Jr., Ingram Road, was arrested and charged with Assault 1st degree on Thursday, May 5, according to arresting officer, Deputy Ryan Lanigan of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office. Lanigan said in a uniform citation, that Jackson County Dispatch 911 received a call on May 5 from a female, who was in extreme emotional distress. The caller stated that her son, Venoy Finley, was acting extremely out of his mind. When Lanigan arrived on the scene, two juveniles, approximately 8-10 years of age, came out from behind the residence and stated that their father, Finley, had been drinking and possibly killed a guy inside the residence before leaving on foot. When Lanigan entered the residence, he observed a male laying in the living room floor, who had appeared to have been beaten extremely in the face area, so badly the officer could not see his facial features due to the amount of blood. Lanigan said he also observed the male's eyes appeared to be swollen shut.
