An HIV-infected woman who bit a store clerk during a robbery has been indicted by a Boyle County grand jury.
Victoria Spoonamore, 29, 0f 448 Patrician Place, was indicted on a charge of first-degree robbery for allegedly "using physical force and causing physical injury" to the clerk "while in course of committing a theft" at Chill's convenience store on Sept. 11.
Originally, Spoonamore also was charged with attempted murder and wanton endangerment by police, but she was not indicted on those charges. Commonwealth's Attorney Richie Bottoms could not be reached for comment.
Police said Spoonamore took money from the register and then twice bit the employee who confronted her about the theft. Spoonamore yelled to the clerk that she has AIDS as she fled the scene.
