A Jennings County man who fatally shot his daughter’s 24-year-old companion in the front yard of a North Vernon home was justified in his use of deadly force, County Prosecutor Alan Marshall said.
No formal charges will be filed against Donald Ray Williams, 57, who lives in Commiskey on the southern edge of the county. The prosecutor’s office ruled Wednesday that the shooting of Jeremy Moore was in self-defense.
Williams was arrested Sept. 9 on a preliminary charge of reckless homicide immediately following the fatal shooting of Moore. The incident occurred in the front yard of the home that Moore shared with Williams’ daughter, Brittany Spicer, in the 300 block of Franklin Street.
