3 indicted on separate charges of exploitation, injury to a child, retaliation

Lubbock County Court House
Lubbock County grand jury indictments Tuesday included charges of injury to a child, retaliation and exploiting the elderly.

Ladonna Johnson
Ladonna Johnson, 28, was indicted on a first-degree felony count of injury to a child with serious bodily injury and a second-degree felony count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Lubbock police investigators believe Johnson threw hot grease at her boyfriend, Toria Deon Ellis, during an argument March 11 at their apartment in the 2100 block of East Fourth Street.

The grease also struck the couple’s toddler, who suffered severe burns.

Officials said Johnson allegedly attacked Ellis with the pan that contained the grease.

Johnson reportedly fled the apartment but was arrested when she returned.

She was booked into the Lubbock County Jail and released May 3 on bond.

Joe Louis Landin
Joe Louis Landin, 53, was indicted on a third-degree felony count of exploiting the elderly.

Lubbock County sheriff’s investigators believe Landin tricked an 85-year-old neighbor into paying him about $10,000 for subpar home repairs.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested Landin in June after the victim’s son reported the exploitation.

Landin remains at the Lubbock County Jail, where he is also booked on felony charges including theft and fraud.

His bond is set at $5,000 for the exploitation charge, according to jail records.
