Ex-Soldier Sent Back To Kentucky To Face Charge

CREATED Jul 16, 2014

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A homeless man kicked out of the Army for rape in 2005 and facing robbery charges in Christian County has been extradited from Montgomery County, Tennessee, after failing to appear at a hearing in May.

The Kentucky New Era reported that 29-year-old Leonard E. Orneval of Clarksville, Tennessee faces four counts of first-degree robbery in connection to a December 2010 home invasion in Oak Grove.

Police said Orneval walked into a home with a still-unidentified accomplice while brandishing a shotgun, which was stolen just hours before the robbery.

Police say Orneval and his accomplice bound the couples with duct tape and took jewelry, wallets and electronics and demanding ATM pin numbers, which Orneval and his accomplice allegedly later used. His bond was set at $10,000.
