Nelson County, Virginia
Nelson County Commonwealth Attorney Daniel Rutherford says felony charges against Jacob Lincoln have been certified by a general district judge. The second degree murder charge and another charge for use of a firearm to commit murder will now go to a grand jury for possible indictment. The charges stem from this shooting in SE Nelson County on May 27, 2017.
“Essentially this means a judge heard the evidence presented in charges and determined there’s enough probable cause to send it to a grand jury to hear for indictment. If the grand jury agrees and does indict, a trial date will then be selected,” VA Rutherford told us.
