INDEPENDENCE — A Grayson County Circuit Court grand jury indicted 27 people on a variety of charges last Friday, including a man charged with involuntary manslaughter.
An indictment is a formal charge, not a finding of guilt.
Donald S. Grimes, 60, of Fries, is charged in connection with the unattended death of a Fries man that occurred on March 22.
Grayson County Sheriff’s Department investigators responded to 70 Springwood Lane in the Carsonville community and found Gary R. Vaughan, 57, deceased in his residence. Investigators observed contusions to Vaughan’s face and also recovered items that raised their suspicions.  
The investigation led to Grimes, who admitted to being in a physical altercation with Vaughan on March 7.
An autopsy was performed on Vaughan at the medical examiner’s office in Roanoke and cause of death was revealed to be head trauma.
Among the other indictments from July 27, Patricia Sue Gravely and Herbert Dean Martin each were indicted of possession of a firearm while also possessing a schedule two controlled substance (methamphetamine), possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony, possession of a meth, possession of a schedule one or two controlled substance as a precursor to manufacture meth, manufacturing meth and conspiring to manufacture meth.
