What we know about Terry Ramsire and Tobias Whetstone

GREENVILLE — Here is what we know at this point concerning Terry Dwayne Ramsire and Tobias Whetstone, two Greenville men whom some media outlets have alleged had ties to the murder of Alicia Moore.

Ramsire, 49, received two indictments from the Hunt County grand jury in September; one for aggravated sexual assault of a child and another for indecency with a child by sexual contact. The former is a first degree felony, carrying a maximum sentence upon conviction of up to life in prison and the latter charge carries a maximum sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

The indictments allege Ramsire sexually assaulted Moore on multiple occasions in July of this year.

Ramsire was arrested on the charges on September 21, and was arraigned and pleaded not guilty to both indictments September 27 during a hearing in the 354th District Court.

Ramsire is currently set trial on the counts on Jan. 14, 2013.

Whetstone, 22, was arrested Thursday on an outstanding warrant on one misdemeanor count of assault causing bodily injury/family violence. Whetstone was alleged in the charge to have assaulted a female family member, not Moore, on September 26. The charge was filed by the Hunt County District Attorney’s Office on October 11 and the warrant for Whetstone’s arrest was issued October 15. As of this morning,  an arraignment hearing had not been scheduled.

Ramsire’s attorney has not yet returned a call from the Herald-Banner concerning the case. It was not immediately known if Whetstone has an attorney.
