LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – A 51-year-old Somerset man is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, public intoxication and other offenses after he allegedly broke into a woman’s home and threatened her and her 6-year-old daughter at gunpoint.

According to Laurel County Sheriff John Root, David G.

As deputies were enroute, they were told Osbrne had managed to get into the home and when they arrived, they found a neighbor had managed to get the weapon away from him, Root said, but not before he had threatened to kill the woman and girl.

Osborne also had threatened to kill the neighbor and his wife, Root noted.
