On 15 Aug 05 Sgt. Gherke and Deputy Sheriff
Mankins responded to a 911 hang up call and a report of a gun
being fired at 470 Cornerville Road, Marietta. During the succeeding
investigation Deputy Mankins discerned that Cynthia Wallace,
age 41, PO Box 233, East Fultonham, OH, was engaged in an argument
with the home’s resident, Kenneth Chidester Jr., age
58. According to Mr. Chidester, he was so angry at Mrs. Wallace
that instead of hitting her he decided to fire a single shot
from his nine millimeter handgun into the floor at Mrs. Wallace’s
feet. Being that Mr. Chidester was intoxicated and that Mrs.
Wallace felt he would cause serious harm to her, Deputy Mankins
arrested Mr. Chidester for aggravated menacing and for handling
a weapon while intoxicated and transported him to the Washington
