MOUNT VERNON — A Utica man was indicted by the Knox County grand jury on Monday on one count of involuntary manslaughter. Harley J. Hanna, according to the indictment, caused the death of Glen D. Willey, who was found dead outside of Choo Choo’s bar on Pittsburgh Avenue in Mount Vernon, on May 21.

Willey, 41, suffered head trauma, which caused bleeding to the lining of his brain, causing his death, according to Knox County Coroner Jennifer Ogle.

Involuntary homicide is a third degree felony punishable by a maximum sentence of up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Hanna was also indicted on one count of assault by knowingly causing or attempting to cause physical harm to another and one count of assault by recklessly causing serious physical harm to another. Both counts are first degree misdemeanors.

A warrant was issued today for Hanna’s arrest. At this time, the News cannot confirm whether or not the warrant has been executed.

More details will be published as they become available.
