Two additional men have been charged with the murder of Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Pickett. The Boone County Prosecutor’s Office filed murder charges against John Baldwin Jr., 29, of Lebanon, and John Austin Ball, 22, of Lebanon, on Wednesday.
Both men have been incarcerated since March on lesser charges, but Boone County Prosecutor Kent Eastwood today dismissed old cases associated with the murder and has refiled the cases with murder at top billing. More details are available in the Lebanon Reporter.
