MADISON — The latest set of grand jury indictments returned last week in Boone County Circuit Court charge 46 individuals with crimes ranging from murder to sexual abuse to kidnapping to child neglect and drug offenses.


Timothy Ray Parsons, 36, was indicted on two counts of first-degree murder, one count of second-degree sexual assault and one count of kidnapping.


According to Boone County Sheriff Rodney Miller, Parsons allegedly killed his wife, mother-in-law and raped his 15-year-old step-daughter.


Miller said Gloria “Sue” Kinder, Parsons’ mother-in-law, and Leighanne Kinder-Parsons, Parsons’ wife, were stabbed to death at their home on River Avenue in Bloomingrose.


According to the criminal complaint, the 15-year-old told investigators while she was taking a shower about 11 p.m. on May 14, 2012, Gloria Sue Kinder went upstairs and found her daughter’s body, Leighanne Kinder, with her throat cut.


Gloria Sue Kinder was then confronted by Parsons who then bound her feet and hands and used a sharp instrument to cut her throat, killing her, according to the complaint.


Investigators say the juvenile states that’s when Parsons told her he was going to have sex with her. After the victim said no, Parsons told her he killed her mother and grandmother and threatened to kill her if she didn’t have sex with him, according to the complaint. Parsons then showed the juvenile the bodies of Gloria Sue Kinder and Leighanne Kinder-Parsons.


According to the complaint, Parsons then forcibly dragged the victim back downstairs to her bedroom and bound her hands and feet to the bed and assaulted her.


The 15-year-old told investigators Parsons stayed at the house until 9 a.m., Tuesday. A few hours later the girl was able to break loose from the bindings and go to a neighbor’s home for help.


Also indicted was Brian Lee King, 39, on one count of second-degree murder.


The indictment comes after King got into a fight with Roy “Cheesy” Gilliam, 23, on the roadway in the Jeffrey-Spencer area of Boone County in the early morning hours of Feb. 22, 2012, and allegedly stabbing him to death.


King is apparently claiming self-defense saying the fight was “over a woman” and that Gillam attacked him.


According to a criminal complaint, King had been in the car with Gillam’s girlfriend, Lori Stevenson, and Gillam found them. A fight broke out, and he was stabbed once in the chest.


Police testified that King admitted to the altercation with Gillam. He also later admitted to having a knife and striking Gillam once in the chest with it.


King, however, told police he was “in fear for his life.”


A visibly upset Stevenson testified that she was just giving King a ride to get a cell phone.
