PIKE COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A Pike County man has been indicted in connection with an alleged domestic disturbance incident that left a woman unconscious.

A recent grand jury charged Jonathan Thornsbury, 29, of Sydney, with attempted murder, rape, sodomy and being a persistent felony offender, according to court records.

On March 7, Kentucky Sate Police said as were responding to the call at the residence in Sydney, they learned the parties had left the residence.

A short time later, troopers located the vehicle belonging to the parties involved in the disturbance at a store.

Inside the vehicle, troopers say they found an unresponsive woman. She was taken to Pikeville Medical Center where she was admitted into ICU for her injuries.

Troopers said last week the woman had been released from the hospital.

Thornsbury will be in Pike County Circuit Court on March 27 for a hearing.
