CELINA — A Celina man was indicted on several charges, including attempted murder, after a domestic dispute earlier this month.

Colin D. Uhlenhake, 29, of 211 S Brandon St, Celina, was indicted by a grand jury for attempted aggravated murder, drug charges and several others related to a March 9 incident that took place at his residence.

During a domestic dispute with a female at the residence he pointed a gun at her head. She pushed the gun away and the gun discharged. There was a 2-year-old child nearby.

Uhlenhake was spotted by a Celina police officer outside his home March 11. Uhlenhake fled into the home pursued by the officer, who forced entry. Uhlenhake was taken into custody.

A marijuana grow operation was found in the home by officers. A subsequent search produced the firearm, two large bags of marijuana and assorted drug paraphernalia.

Uhlenhake was being held in the Mercer County Jail.
