Woman indicted for hitting with brick


A Dayton woman was indicted Thursday after police say she she broke another woman’s eye socket after hitting the woman in the face with a brick.

Marquana Shantell Shaw, 29, is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court for two counts of felonious assault.

Dayton police and medics were called around 8 p.m. Feb. 7 to the 200 block of Basswood Avenue in Dayton, where a 52-year-old woman said she briefly lost consciousn­ess after she was involved in an argument with an acquaintan­ce that turned physical, according to an affidavit filed in Dayton Municipal


When crews responded, they reported that the left side of the victim’s face was bloody and extremely swollen.

Dayton medics took her to Grandview Medical Center, where the woman said doctors told her she suffered a broken eye socket and had several teeth knocked out, according to an affidavit.

Shaw is in the Montgomery County Jail, where she has been held since her April 6 arrest by Dayton police.

A Kettering man was sentenced Thursday to 131 years to life in prison in a child rape case involving his girlfriend’s children.

Robert Jeffrey Ruehle, 34, was convicted March 25 by a Montgomery County Common Pleas Court jury of three counts of rape of a child younger than 13; eight counts of rape by force; two counts of gross sexual imposition of a child younger than 13; and two counts of gross sexual imposition by force.

Police began investigat­ing Ruehle after one of the victims, now an adult, in April 2018 told staff at her school that Ruehle had been sexually abusing her since she was 10. In September 2019 the second victim said that he, too, had been sexually abused by Ruehle from a young age. The children’s mother did not believe the incidents happened, according to a release from Montgomery County Prosecutor Mat Heck Jr.

“This defendant has a long history of sexually assaulting people, including these children — even before they moved to Montgomery County,” Heck said. “Thankfully, when the disclosure was made to school staff, they promptly reported it to law enforcemen­t. During Child Abuse Prevention Month, this case is a good example of the positive results that can be obtained when our agencies work cooperativ­ely to protect children. These children bravely coming forward, even if they were failed by their mother’s inaction, ensures this defendant can never hurt them or any other children again.”

In addition to his prison sentence, Ruehle was designated a Tier III sexual offender, the most serious classifica­tion.
