Vine Grove man indicted on strangulation charge

A Vine Grove man arrested in July on a charge of first-degree wanton endangerment was indicted last week by a Hardin County grand jury on a higher level felony.

Marshall Howell, 47, was indicted on a first-­degree strangulation charge, a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted. Wanton endangerment is a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.

Howell was indicted from a reported July 2 incident involving a woman. His bond was a $1,000 unsecured bond from the indictment.

He was re-arrested Thursday for violating conditions of his release, which included no contact with the victim. His bond was increased to a $2,500 cash bond from the arrest.
