CELINA — A 29-year-old Celina man has been indicted by a grand jury on a charge of attempted aggravated murder. Colin D. Uhlenhake is charged based on an incident that took place at his home on Brandon St. in Celina March 9.
According to Celina Police, Uhlenhake is accused of pointing a gun at a woman during a domestic dispute. Police claim that when the woman pushed the gun away it went off. The woman was not injured. A two-year-old was in the house when the gun discharged.
Two days later, Uhlenhake was spotted by a Celina police officer outside the Brandon St. home. Uhlenhake ran into the home but was chased by the officer who had to force his way into the inside. Uhlenhake was taken into custody at that point.
Inside the house, officers found a marijuana grow operation and the gun, two bags of pot and assorted drug paraphernalia were found during a subsequent search.
Along with the attempted aggravated murder charge, Uhlenhake also is charged with third-degree felony tampering with evidence, second-degree felony felonious assault, fourth-degree felony cultivation of marijuana, and misdemeanor charges of domestic violence and failure to comply with the order or signal of a police officer.
He is being held in the Mercer County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
