Commiskey man accused in fatal Jennings shooting


The Jennings County man who was arrested in Monday afternoon’s fatal shooting had a personal connection to the victim, a North Vernon neighbor said Tuesday.

Donald R. Williams, 57, of Commiskey, is the father of the victim’s companion and the grandfather of the couple’s child, neighbor Tom Updike said.

Updike said Jeremy Moore, 24, who was killed in the shooting, had moved into Brittany D. Spicer’s home at 309 Franklin St. within the past year. Together, they had an infant daughter, Updike said.

Police said that just before the shooting, Williams and Moore had been arguing in the front yard of the residence on Franklin Street where Moore and Spicer lived.
