A man who has been charged in several violent cases has been indicted by the Hamilton County Grand Jury for attempted murder.
Timothy Dewayne Sexton, 29, of 111 Oneal St., is charged with an attempt on the life of Shenard Stewart last Sept. 19.
He is also charged with aggravated assault.
In November 2012, Sexton was arrested in connection with the slaying of Barry Bowman at 6317 Walden Ave. on Sept. 19. But the charge was later dismissed.
When he was 24 in 2007, two attempted first-degree murder charges were lodged against Sexton. He later pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault. He was given a six-month suspended sentence. Sexton had been in jail since his arrest.
In that case, Larry Jennings Jr., 20, was treated and released after suffering a gunshot wound to the right side of his face and another wound to his right arm. The victim told major crimes detectives that he and his girlfriend, Linda Ramsey, were attempting to park outside his motel room at the Intown Suites when he saw Sexton lean out of a gray SUV and begin shooting at his car.
The victim managed to get away and he drove into the lot of the Favorite Market at 6200 Lee Highway, where he informed a Chattanooga Police officer of what had just occurred.
Police were told that the two men had argued earlier at a night club called “The Abyss” on Wilcox Boulevard.
Police at the time said Sexton is an affiliated gang member in the Eastdale area.
