Suspect charged with beating man for money


A Marysville man has been indicted after he was allegedly paid to beat up another man.
The Union County Grand Jury indicted Christopher Coffenberger, 30, of 350 Sycamore St., charging him with one count each of attempted burglary and vandalism.
According to court documents, at about 3 a.m., July 4, a resident of the 200 block of West Third Street heard an upstairs window break. The resident called 911, then went outside where he saw a ladder from the ground to the roof. He allegedly saw Coffenberger standing on the roof. Coffenberger had allegedly broken a window on the roof in an attempt to get into the home. The resident told Coffenberger he had called for help and the police were on the way.
“Coffenberger had left the scene, prior to law enforcement arriving,” Union County Prosecutor Dave Phillips said.
The resident was able to identify Coffenberger as the man on the roof. Investigators determined that another man had allegedly paid Coffenberger to go to the home and beat up the resident.
If convicted on both counts, Coffenberger could face as many as six years in prison.
Also indicted were:

  • Ashley Jones, 35, of 851 W. Fifth St., Marysville. Jones is charged with one count each of possession of heroin and endangering children. According to court documents, on July 20, Jones was found unconscious in her home. She had allegedly overdosed on heroin. The woman’s 2-year-old daughter was allegedly in the home while she used the heroin and at the time of the alleged overdose.
    Phillips said the Union County Department of Job and Family Services’ Child Protective Services was contacted. He did not give specifics about the case but said the agency has options including removing the child or creating a safety plan that would allow the child remain in the home with the parents.
    If convicted on both charges, Jones could face as many as 18 months behind bars.
  • Sarah Marie Fuson, 37, of 266 W. Third St., Marysville. Fuson is charged with one count of trafficking in heroin, stemming from a July 20 incident. If convicted, Fuson could face as many as 12 months in prison.
  • Shane M. Walters, 38, of 13436 Route 36, Marysville. Walters is charged with one count each of aggravated possession of drugs and tampering with evidence, stemming from an alleged incident Oct. 25. If convicted, Walters could face as many as six years in prison.
  • Sherilyn Davis, 30, whose court-listed address is the Tri-County Regional Jail in Mechanicsburg. Davis is charged with domestic violence.

Court documents allege there was bruising on the man’s neck.
    Normally, domestic violence is charged as a misdemeanor. Once someone has a domestic violence conviction, however, future allegations are charged as felonies. In November 2017, Davis was convicted of domestic violence
