A Glendale man, who has been lodged in the Hardin County Detention Center since his arrest Nov. 14 by Hardin County Sheriff’s Office deputies, has been indicted by a Hardin County grand jury for attempted murder.

Aaron Florian, 38, allegedly placed a rifle on the back of the man’s head and pulled the trigger, but the weapon malfunctioned and failed to fire, according to a citation. Flor­ian then reportedly pulled the charging handle on the rifle and expelled the chambered round, the citation said.

On the evening prior to his arrest, Florian reportedly grabbed his rifle on several occasions and threatened to kill the same male relative, according to the arrest citation. Florian allegedly told the man he would “not live to see Saturday” and that he was “a dead man.”

Florian was indicted for attempted murder, a Class B felony punishable by 10 to 20 years in prison, if convicted; first-degree wanton endangerment, a Class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted, and third-degree terroristic threatening.

He has been held in lieu of a $50,000 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center.
