Thomas, arrested Monday night, and Turner, arrested Wednesday afternoon, face multiple felony charges of rape, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, theft and sodomy, after they allegedly broke into a trailer on Swindall Road and committed the above crimes.

Kendrick Katrell Thomas, 23, is also charged with these crimes and is in the Pike County Jail.

Both Ronald Thomas and Turner had prior felony convictions in Barbour County and were both out on parole or probation from those sentences.

Thomas was convicted of two counts of robbery first degree in March 2004. Turner was charged with robbery first degree, discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and burglary third degree in August 2004.

Both were sentenced to 20 year-split sentences and were out on probation or parole at the time they are alleged to have committed the crimes on Swindall Road. Barbour County has revoked their bond, at least until a court hearing, for which a date has not been set at this time.

Kendrick Thomas remains in jail on a bond of $800,000.

The three suspects were alleged to have broken into a trailer, where six adults resided, four Hispanic males, one Hispanic female and one white female.

The suspects were armed during the occurrence early Monday morning. Collectively, they all have 48 charges.

In common, they each face six charges of robbery first degree, six charges of kidnapping first degree, one count of burglary first degree and one count of theft first degree.

In addition, Kendrick Thomas is charged with one count of rape first degree; Ronald Thomas with rape and sodomy first degree; and Turner with two counts of rape first degree and one count of sodomy first degree.

Scarbrough said the Troy Police Department continues to investigate this incident.
