Peace indicted in 3 cases, bond set at $200,000

GREENVILLE – Darke County Common Pleas Judge Jonathan P. Hein set bail at $200,000, as recommended by the prosecutor, for a Darke County man indicted on several assault, drug and theft related charges.

A Grand Jury indicted Delphus Ray Peace Aug. 28 on one count of Aggravated Robbery, a felony of the first degree, and Felonious Assault, a second degree felony. These charges are in connection with an Aug. 25 violent robbery of a 63-year-old local business owner in which Peace allegedly brutally struck the man in the head before fleeing the property with his wallet and cash. The man was airlifted to a Dayton hospital with several severe injuries.

Peace was also indicted on two counts of Grand Theft, felonies of the fourth degree, and two counts of Sale of Counterfeit Controlled Substance, a fourth and fifth degree felony. He was indicted in July for a sole count of Receiving Stolen Property, a fifth degree felony. The bond set by Judge Hein blankets all three newly indicted charges. He was given an OR bond on the July case prior to the new offenses.

Peace appeared for an arraignment hearing by video connection Tuesday afternoon where the judge set bail and a selected local defense attorney Randall E. Breaden to represent Peace. He is scheduled for pre-trial Sept. 26 at 9:45 a.m. in Common Pleas Court. He faces over 24 years in prison if convicted as charged. Darke County Prosecuting Attorney Kelly Ormsby is handling the cases for the state.
