A Piqua woman indicted on one count of felony rape for alleged sexual conduct with a 14-year-old has filed a plea of not guilty by the reason of insanity in Miami County Common Pleas Court.

Hannah Wood, 23, is accused of engaging in sexual conduct with another through the use of force or threat of force Aug. 27-29 in Piqua. The indictment for the first-degree felony charge was issued by a Miami County grand jury.

In filing the plea, public defender Stephen King asked Judge Jeannine Pratt to order evaluations to determine Wood’s competency to stand trial and her mental condition (sanity) at the time of the alleged offense.

Bail for Wood has been set at $25,000 cash or surety.  She remains in the county jail.
