Anna melvinAnna melvinLouisa, KY -- Aaron Uhlmann, 43, a Webbbille man indicted on murder and kidnapping charges in April of this year on a domestic violence incident involving his wife, Jennifer Priddy, will report for court on Sept. 26.  The report date was set during Lawrence County Circuit Court, Friday, June 27.

According to the indictment, Uhlmann knowingly and unlawfully restrained Priddy with the intent to inflict bodily injury and/or to terrorize the victim.  The indictment says that Priddy died from serious physical injuries suffered as a result of the kidnapping.

Uhlmann was arrested in December, 2013 on the assault charge involving Priddy, and was first indicted in January on kidnapping and robbery charges in the same incident, when he allegedly stole a truck from a man, and forced him to drive toward a neighboring county.  

The murder charge was added after Priddy died.

Commonwealth Attorney, Anna Melvin, is expected to file notice that the Commonwealth will seek the death penalty for Uhlmann, although formal documents have not yet been filed.
