A Soldier assigned to an Army installation that straddles the Tennessee-Kentucky border has been accused of murdering a 14-year-old, and his case has been handed to a grand jury.
Jamison Todd Mullins II was charged with fatally shooting 14-year-old Demariontae Brown in March, and was booked by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
While booked by the MCSO, Mullins was arrested by the Clarksville Police Department.
Mullins, who is eleven years older than Brown, saw the teenager breaking into his wife’s vehicle and fired a single shot.
According to the Leaf Chronicle, Brown was fatally struck and died at the scene.
While the case has been bound over to the grand jury for a review, it was not immediately clear when the panel would hear it, as such proceedings are confidential.
“We’ve conducted our investigation and a preliminary hearing just isn’t necessary at this point,” Mullins’ attorney Chase Smith said Tuesday.
The mother of Damariontae Brown, Shawntae Brown, has lost two sons to fatal gunshot wounds. Her other late son, Quincy Brown, was killed in East Nashville after getting into a confrontation with Antwain Kelly, Dejuan Bell, and Robert Howard.
