May 16, 2007|by MATTHEW UMSTEAD

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A grand jury convened Tuesday on the first day of the May term of Circuit Court in Berkeley County determined sufficient evidence was provided by the state to indict 22 people, according to signed copies of the sequestered panel's true bills released by Prosecutor Pamela J. Games-Neely's office.

An indictment merely reflects the grand jury's conclusion that the accused probably committed the crime or crimes in question, but it is not evidence of guilt. Jurors are slated to reconvene today.

Indicted Tuesday were:

· Melvin S. Wise II, 31, of 364 Charge Court in Martinsburg, on one count of failure to pay child support between March 1999 and April 2007.

· Kevin Ray Hough, 41, of 205 Opal Court in Martinsburg, on four counts of uttering in January 2007.

· Thomas D. Foltz, 27, of 804 Albert St. in Martinsburg, on counts of first-degree robbery, first-degree attempted robbery and assault during the commission of a felony in October 2006.
