Grand jury returns 4 ‘no bills’

MOULTRIE — A Colquitt County grand jury found insufficient evidence to indict a Colquitt County woman who was accused of the Jan. 5 stabbing of her husband.

The grand jury recently returned a no bill in the case of Sandra Jean Hobby.

Barring additional information, Hobby, 44, will not be prosecuted in the case, Assistant District Attorney Brian McDaniel said Thursday.

“Unless more evidence comes forward at some point, that will probably be the only presentment for Mrs. Hobby,” he said.

Medical and law enforcement personnel were called to the home of Hobby and husband Roland Hobby on the night of Jan. 5.

Roland Hobby told officers that he fell on a kitchen knife while sharpening.

Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office reports said that Roland Hobby had extensive bleeding. The knife recovered by officers had been washed prior to their arrival.

Roland Hobby spent an extended period at Colquitt Regional Medical Center.

He told The Observer in February that his wife is innocent and that he wanted her to be cleared in the case.

In other cases, no bills were handed down in the following:

• Wayne Kyle Morris: terroristic threats.

• Marshall Black Jr.: aggravated battery.

• Kenny Lawton Jr.: terroristic threats.

• Elaine Christful: aggravated assault.
