According to officials at the Brazil City Police Department, Brandon L. Duskey, 24, Stacy Duskey, 24, were arrested on class D felony theft charges stemming from an investigation on or about Aug. 24.
The Brazil Housing Authority apparently contacted the BCPD after the couple moved out of an apartment at Central West Village and allegedly took the refrigerator that was supposed to remain in the apartment.
An officer with the Brazil City Police Department arrested Brandon Friday, while Stacy, upon learning about the warrant, turned herself into a deputy with the Clay County Sheriff's Department later the same evening.
Initially both were incarcerated on $7,000 cash bonds (with 10 percent allowed). However, on Monday, Clay Circuit Court Judge Joseph Trout released Brandon on his own recognizance when he appeared for formal arraignment. Attorney Charles Hear was appointed as defense counsel and a tentative jury trial was scheduled for Dec. 6.
Jail officials confirmed Wednesday Stacy, who appeared by video conference before Clay Superior Court Judge Blaine Akers on Monday, remains incarcerated while awaiting further court proceedings. Attorney Matthew Effner will represent Stacy, whose jury trial has been tentatively scheduled Jan. 24.
