     Indictments handed down by an Acccomack Grand Jury this week accuse five men of committing violent crimes.

     Twenty-three-year-old Jaylon Calvin Harmon, also known as Jaylon Kellam, of Cemetery Road in Belle Haven, was indicted on counts of malicious bodily injury of Kaitlyn Pipplin, attempted first-degree murder of Pipplin, abuse and neglect of a child, unlawfully shooting during the commission of a felony, reckless handling of a firearm by a felon, assault and battery of Officer J.S. Rose of the Onley Police Department, and attempting to disarm Rose. The incidents occurred Dec. 3.

     Court records state Harmon told a magistrate that “he wants to be able to get back to work to take care of his grandmother. Says he doesn’t understand what’s going on. States allegations are a lie.”
