    I notice a lot of court hearings etc after his resisting arrest in Oct 2016. They plea dealt out of a jury trial if I read this correctly.

    This guy was always going to end up in serious trouble

    So he has admitted it. Terrible. Almost sounds like she was ambushed by them once she got there. The others have got to confess now too right?

    Yes, sounds like at least Ashlee would be there since he was bringing her there to "hash it out". He called Mathis to dispose of the body so I don't think he was there but unsure on the other girls involved.

    So the others will likely say they were scared of him and so did whatever he said so they weren't next. Nobody tried to save her by calling an ambulance or the police by the looks of it. MOO.

    Well, if there is any possibility this killer has other crimes we don’t know about, judging by his Facebook feed Ash Ley will be wanting to avoid being charged as an accessory, in my humble and personal opinion

    If we have a media thread can we post more than 10% in that? Do we have a media thread?

    I am able to open this type of links in private/incogito windows on firefox and chrome.

    You can either c/p the link into a private/incognito window or you can right click the link and then select open in private/incognito window. HTH

    I'm not sure but I think only jumbo threads get a dedicated media thread?

    And, also, re: the actual probable cause affidavit... can anyone access that? I know I have seen people post them in other threads and it always has a ton of info in it. TIA

    Superior Court | Carroll County Comet

    Superior Court
    - Judge Kurtis Fouts
    April 03, 2019

    Garett K. Kirts was charged with two counts of invasion of privacy.

    -----------

    A Google search for "invasion of privacy charge Indiana" indicates that the charge is the result of violating a protective order or no contact order.

    2017 Indiana Code :: TITLE 35. Criminal Law and Procedure :: ARTICLE 46. MISCELLANEOUS OFFENSES :: CHAPTER 1. Offenses Against the Family :: 35-46-1-15.1. Invasion of privacy; offense; penalties
    ----------

    moo
    So, the (two counts?) of invasion of privacy charges on April 3, 2019 are just two days before he was arrested for NB's murder on April 5, 2019. NB was found dead March 30, 2019. It seems likely the protective order was for the person he tried to strangle (in Jan I think).
