    Just commenting on that charge for AG being dismissed- maybe she is coming clean and talking about this or has knowledge of other crimes? Having to wait till November is hard. Hope Nicole's family know a bit more than us.

    What do posters think is the reason for that dismissal? Any thoughts?

    Late response but, no. As a paralegal familiar with the criminal courts in Indiana, it is very normal for trials to get cancelled and continued over and over again. A lot of people who end up with public defenders ask for a speedy trial after their trial has been continued over and over again. The process getting to actually have the trial takes a long time, all the while they may be in jail.

    Ted Bundy's mom defended him until the end. She heard his confessions and continued to defend his innocence. This guy's family may care for him a great deal, I don't think that we can say for sure they didn't. And drug addiction does not always equate violence and murder. I'm sure his family and friends knew him as a lot of things, but it's a pretty big jump from general piece of crap human being to murderer. It is clear from his past that he makes bad choices, but this could be very shocking to people who knew him. Or not. Just my opinion, of course.

    Welcome to WS doubleo. GK had a prior strangulation case pending against him so it may not have been completely unexpected to those who knew him,perhaps. However the brutality and savagery of the murder of a young mother of two must have come as a great shock to his acquaintances, as it certainly has to complete strangers here on WS. The acquaintances of those accused with him must also be shocked IMO.

    Perhaps one motive for him strangling NB with others to witness it: to show them his brutality, to keep THEM Shut Up, also?

    Newton County Sheriff's Office

    This is the LE facebook post from the beginning of this case and it makes me realise that GK is the youngest of all 5 yet none of the others stepped in to prevent this. What makes a 34 or 36 year old obey a 21 year old?

    4-2-19 Jasmine N. Parker, 34 years old of Kentland, IN was charged for ASSISTING A CRIMINAL, level 5 Felony.
    4-3-19 Ashley N. Garth, 26 years old of Delphi, IN was charged for ASSISTING A CRIMINAL, level 5 Felony.
    4-5-19 Garett K. Kirts charged with MURDER, Felony charge. Kirts is now in the Newton County Jail being held without bond.
    A warrant has been issued and is outstanding for Christopher (Chris) Channing Mathis, 27 years old of Kentland for ASSISTING A CRIMINAL, level 5 Felony.

    (Mathis and Talitha A. Beckley, 36 were arrested at a later date than the other 3)

    He must be very scary with a quick and violent temper. He's a pretty bulky dude too most of the time. Just a guess but great question.

    Garth, Ashley N. - same here as above.
    Mathis, Christopher Channing - same here.
    Beckley, Talitha A. - same here.

    Okay - I went back to see if I could find a link to their cases. @Tippy Lynn - I noticed your post above. "Where" did you find this? You didn't link a url for this.

    TIA! :)

    Bumping @Niner
    a reminder that Newton County do not use Odyssey system so they are not in the Mycase records. :)

    ETA the January case was a separate strangulation assault - we don't know who the victim was.

    I know you were not asking me but I believe it is $0 for something like 6 searches per month. You can get further searches for $$, etc.
