AP/WVLT Friday December 15, 2017

Jurors found one defendant guilty of first-degree murder and two others guilty on a lesser charge of facilitation of first-degree murder in connection with the 2015 death of a Tennessee teenager who shielded friends from gunfire. Twenty-two-year-old Christopher Drone Bassett was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of 15-year-old Zaevion Dobson. Kipling Deshawn Colbert, 22, and Richard Gregory Williams III, 23, also had been facing first-degree murder charges but were instead found guilty of facilitating the murder. Dobson, a high school football player, was on a back porch with friends on Dec. 17, 2015, when shots were fired. Police said Dobson suffered a fatal gunshot wound while shielding two girls, who were unhurt. Sentencing for all three has been set for February 2.

 


Dale Hollow Dam Campground Closed Dec. 18 to March 2018
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers/Peg Broadcasting News Friday December 15, 2017

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announces that work to replace water lines at Dale Hollow Dam Campground in Celina, Tenn., begins Dec. 18, 2017, making it necessary to close public access. The work is scheduled to be completed in March 2018, weather permitting. While construction is underway, restricting public access to the campground is necessary because heavy machinery along with open trenches during construction make conditions unsafe. Anyone desiring to hike on the back part of the trail or fish along the steam can access these areas via the road side parking on highway 53. The fishing pier adjacent to the day use area will remain open. While the Dale Hollow Dam Campground is closed to walking, please consider using the trails at Donaldson Park, located at 1110 Jackson Street in Celina, which is a short distance away.

TN Top 10 Fugitive Captured In Texas
AP Thursday December 14, 2017

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says a suspect in three slayings who was listed among the agency's Top 10 Most Wanted fugitives has been captured in Texas. The bureau said in a tweet Thursday morning that Antoine Lashun Adams was taken into custody in Harrison County, Texas. Police in Mississippi and Tennessee have been looking for Adams since he escaped a jail last month in Holly Springs, Mississippi. Adams is accused of killing a man and leaving him in a Mississippi ditch late last year. He also faces two murder charges in Memphis. Adams was arrested in August in Texas and brought to a Mississippi jail, where he crawled under a fence to escape. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation didn't immediately release further details about his capture.
