Mother indicted for cutting boy’s finger

A Clayton County grand jury has indicted a mother for intentionally cutting her son’s finger with a kitchen knife.

Laquita Renee Rue was indicted Wednesday for aggravated assault in connection with the injury to her son’s finger, according to Clayton County Superior Court documents. The indictments also allege Rue beat her son in the back with a curtain rod and in the head with a can of Lysol. She is charged with two counts of battery and child cruelty, and one of simple battery.

The seven-count indictment also charges Rue with misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

In other indictments:

-- A man who served nearly 11 years in a Georgia prison for a 1995 armed robbery and kidnapping has been indicted on the same charges in an unrelated case. Tavaris Montez Minor, 36, is serving a second term for armed robbery and kidnapping with an expected release date in 2019, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.

The grand jury indicted Minor in the Dec. 9, 2010, armed robbery of Game Stop. He is charged with aggravated assault, pointing a pistol at another, armed robbery, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

-- An Atlanta man who served almost seven years in a Georgia prison for voluntary manslaughter was indicted for burglary in Forest Park. Court records show Nathan Jacobs Jr., 40, was convicted of the crime in 1992 in DeKalb County. Clayton prosecutors charged Jacobs with breaking into condemned property at the Taj Mahal Apartments on Moore Avenue.

Jacobs is charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, burglary, criminal trespass and possession of tools for the purpose of committing theft. Police said Jacobs had a hacksaw and pipe and wire cutters when he was arrested. Jacobs is being held on $37,000 bond in the Clayton County Jail.

-- Two men were indicted for false imprisonment and aggravated sodomy. Police said Xavier Hutchinson and Cassius Ray Williams held the victim against her will and forced her to perform oral sex on them in the Nov. 15 alleged incident.

All defendants are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
