MEDINA — A Medina County grand jury this week indicted a 31-year-old Medina woman accused of trying to kill her 6-year-old son with a pillow last month.
Terry J. Boyle, of 516 N. State Road, Apt. N7, is charged with attempted murder and felonious assault. The charges are first- and second-degree felonies punishable by 19 or more years in prison.
According to police, Boyle told a counselor July 18 at Solutions Behavioral Healthcare in Medina that she felt “homicidal” toward her child.
Police were called to transport her to Medina Hospital for evaluation. She was arrested that day.
According to the indictment, the woman attempted to kill her son earlier that day with a pillow.
Boyle has no previous record in Medina County Common Pleas Court or Medina Municipal Court.
She has been free on 10 percent of a $500,000 bond and is scheduled to enter a plea in Judge James L. Kimbler’s courtroom Aug. 29. [br]

• A 24-year-old convicted drug trafficker was charged with rape and kidnapping.
David S. Troutman, of 388 W. Union St., Apt. 8, Medina, faces up to 22 years in prison if convicted of the two first-degree felonies.
Troutman was convicted in county Common Pleas Court last year after pleading guilty to trafficking in oxycodone, oxymorphone and hydromorphone. He was sentenced to 90 days of home arrest, 24 hours of community service and three years of probation.
