Woman charged after hiding with wanted boyfriend in attic

A New Stanton woman faces charges of hindering apprehension after she and her boyfriend hid in an attic to avoid police.

State police were called March 31 to a Fennel Street residence in Salem where Brandy M. Kimberly, 28, and her boyfriend, Kevin E. Wahl, 31, of New Alexandria, were arguing loudly enough for a neighbor to hear and call police, according to a criminal complaint.

When troopers arrived at the home where Wahl’s mother lives, Kimberly and Wahl hid, the complaint states. Wahl has an active parole violation warrant stemming from a 2013 guilty plea on drug charges.

Kimberly was charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution. A preliminary hearing is scheduled May 1 before Apollo District Judge Jason Buczak. Wahl faces an April 25 hearing before Common Pleas Judge James Panchik.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
