Jameson Read of Trenton is charged in Sullivan County with one count of assault. In Grundy County he’s facing one count each of murder and armed criminal action. He was in a Grundy County courtroom Tuesday afternoon.

Police allege that Read shot John Vencill, 52, multiple times on July 3rd before dumping his body and a car in a pond in rural Grundy County. The Trenton man is also accused of assaulting a person in Humphreys on July 4th.

Acting Attorney General Scott Fox motioned to file a second amended complaint. The defense did not object. At that time both the defense and prosecution announced they were ready to proceed. The court then found probable cause in the charges and ordered Read to be bound over to Division I of the Grundy County Circuit Court.

He will next appear for an arraignment on December 12th at 9 a.m.
