Courtroom Roundup 5-13: Yancy indicted on aggravated rape, incest charges

A grand jury in 14th Judicial District Court on Thursday indicted a man on charges of raping and molesting a family member under the age of 13.

Karl Edgar Yancy, 27, 1315 8th Street was indicted on three counts of aggravated rape and three counts of aggravated incest.

Judge Wilford Carter set Yancy’s bond at $2.25 million.
