YOUNGSTOWN — Kevin L. Talley, 51, of the Mahoning County jail and Hillman Way in Boardman, was indicted Thursday on charges of rape, attempted felonious assault and domestic violence.

These offenses are alleged to have happened April 1 in Boardman.

He was arraigned on the rape and domestic violence charges April 5 in Mahoning County Area Court in Boardman, and his case was transferred to Mahoning County Common Pleas Court during a preliminary hearing April 14.

Also indicted Thursday was George W. Panno, 29, of Fifth Street in Struthers, on cruelty to companion animals with a firearm specification. He is alleged to have killed his dog, named Diesel, a male pit bull mix, on April 8.
