By STACEY HAIRSTON - Staff Writer
A Franklin County grand jury returned 118 indictments against 32 people Monday.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. It is a determination by jurors that enough evidence exists to warrant a trial.
Indictments returned by the grand jury:
•Elizabeth Virginia Akers, two counts of failing to provide adequate feed, water or veterinary care to prevent suffering or disease transmission, Nov. 13 and 14, 2014; and ill-treat or deprive an animal of necessary food, drink or emergency veterinary treatment, Nov. 14, 2014.
Consumers can expect drop in APCo bill

Residential customers of Appalachian Power Co. will see a decrease in their electric bills starting this month.
Customers should see a 4-percent drop in their total bill because several fees to recover costs have ended.
Called RACs (Rate Adjustment Clauses), three of the fees that have been in place for several years to recoup expenses expired in February, said John Shepelwich.
