The McLennan County Grand Jury brought down 90 indictments Wednesday and one of them is a habitual offender.

Otha Leon Carter, 52, was indicted for aggravated assault habitual.

According to an arrest warrant, on April 17, 2017 Carter was at a home in the 1100 hundred block of Conner Avenue in Waco with another man and a woman. The arrest warrant states that while in the residence, Carter got a butcher knife from the kitchen and held it down as if he was going to stab someone. The woman stepped in between Carter and the other man, telling the other man to leave. Carter, with the knife still in his hand, then chased after the man who had walked out.

The arrest warrant states Carter swung the knife at him twice, missing the man both times. The man managed to get into his vehicle and left and called 9-1-1. 

The April 2017 event isn't Carter's first offense, according to authorities. According to the indictment, he's been convicted of two other crimes. Carter was also convicted of robbery in 2001 and in 2004 was convicted of aggravated assault.

Carter could get 25-99 years or life in prison for this latest true bill.
