Garvin is charged in the deaths of Edward D. Mollett, 46, and Juanita F. Mollett, 43, of 287-C Snook Road, and 20-year-old Christina J. Mollett, 1602-A Junior Furnace Road.
Balmer, arrested in Florida on a drug trafficking warrant from Portsmouth is considered a "person of interest" in the shooting, but not a suspect.
"We filed five indictments today," Scioto County Prosecutor Mark Kuhn said on Wednesday. "Three on Kara Garvin and two on Paul Balmer. Kara Garvin's was an 18-count indictment with specifications -- nine counts of aggravated murder. Although there were only three murders, there were nine counts for alleged violations of the aggravated murder statute."
Kuhn said it did include five aggravating specifications which could mean the death penalty.
"She was also indicted on a separate charge involving a November 26 incident that was recently referred to the sheriff that involved allegations of attempted murder, aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery and other charges," Kuhn said. "It was a robbery out there involving a couple of other folks by the name of Mollett related to the victims who were murdered. They (the victims) didn't report it until the murders."
In addition to those charges, Garvin was indicted on a bad check charge.
"Paul Balmer was indicted on the same attempted murder, aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary charges out of the November 26 allegations," Kuhn said. "That was a total of an eight-count indictment on those allegations. He was also indicted on the drug possession/drug trafficking charges that he has been held on down in Florida."
Kuhn said the Scioto County Grand Jury had not yet considered whether or not to consider charges on Balmer for aggravated murder or murder.
"We are going to wait and ask the grand jury in January to consider that, after he is back in custody," Kuhn said.
Scioto County Sheriff's Detectives traveled Wednesday to Clay County, Florida to pick Balmer up after he waived his right to an extradition hearing, and they are expected to return him to Scioto County today.
Kuhn said Garvin remains in the Scioto County Jail on a $1.5 million bond from Portsmouth Municipal Court and warrants have been issued on all three of those indictments, and from that point she has no bond on those indictments filed Wednesday.
"That means she could technically post the $1.5 million on the PMC charges, but she would still not be able to be released on the charges filed today (Wednesday)," Kuhn said. "There will be no bond until she is arraigned."
Kuhn said the case will now be assigned to one of the two Scioto County Common Pleas judges and an arraignment date will be set.
Garvin is charged with shooting the three members of the Mollett family to death on Dec. 22.
A six-year-old witnessed the shootings, and escaped to a neighbor's house where a 911 call was placed to the Scioto County Sheriff's office, according to sheriff reports.
