HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A 37-year-old man who served time for attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and aggravated burglary was bound over for trial in a serious domestic case.
Armando Fierro was bound over for trial with an added charge of kidnapping, aggravated battery-domestic violence, aggravated assault, aggravated arson and aggravated endangerment of a child.
It started on June 6 when police were called on the report of an aggravated battery. At one point, Fierro brought in a propane tank and threatened more violence against the victim and her three disabled children. The victim was able to escape and call police.
When officers entered the home, they could see pillows in the living room had been set on fire near where the propane tank was sitting.
Fierro’s prior convictions came after the shotgun shooting of Lloyd Eddens, who collapsed on his neighbor’s front porch after being shot in his home. Fierro later admitted to shooting Eddens accidentally. That was back in 2000.
Fierro will be back in court next month for arraignment in this latest case.
