Edinburg teen indicted on additional stabbing charges

Samuel Homer

WOODSTOCK — The Edinburg teen accused in the stabbing of a mother and her two daughters at a park in May was indicted on additional charges Wednesday.

The grand jury indicted Samual Jacob Homer, 18, on three counts of aggravated malicious wounding from the May 18 incident. He was indicted on two counts of attempted first-degree murder and five counts of possessing child pornography in July.

The IQ evaluation in Homer’s case is still in progress, both Commonwealth’s Attorney Amanda Wiseley and Assistant Public Defender Peter McDermott said at Wednesday’s hearing. They said they did not believe it would be ready by the previously scheduled Oct. 25 hearing.

A new hearing on the results of the evaluation as it pertains to all charges was set for Nov. 29 in Shenandoah County Circuit Court. Homer remains held without bond at the Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail.
