Judge sends Wedowee attempted murder, domestic violence case to grand jury

  • Comments

A judge on Tuesday sent the case of a Wedowee man charged with throwing a woman from a loft and attacking her with a circular saw to a grand jury for review.

Randolph County District Judge Amy Newsome bound over Kyle Young Waters’ case after a Tuesday afternoon preliminary hearing.

Randolph County sheriff’s deputies charged Waters in February with attempted murder and first-degree domestic violence.

According to court documents, Waters and the woman were sitting on an 8-foot loft inside a shed at his home on Randolph County 212 when he pushed her off and then attacked her.

Waters allegedly jumped on her, stabbed her numerous times in the neck with a piece of broken glass and cut her throat with a Ryobi circular saw. 

Deputies said shortly afterward the woman was taken to a hospital in Atlanta and was recovering.

Waters was released on bond earlier this month after Newsome modified his bond from $610,000 cash to $500,000 surety. He was placed under a curfew and electronic ankle monitoring as a condition of his release.

An attempt Tuesday to reach Waters’ attorney, Thomas Radney, for additional comment was unsuccessful.

First-degree domestic violence and attempted murder are both Class A felonies. If convicted, Waters could face life in prison and owe up to a $60,000 fine.
