Two men believed to be involved in the killing of a man in May 2016 were in court on Tuesday for a probable cause hearing.
Jesus Eduardo Sanchez and Michael Ray Chisholm are accused of stabbing and killing Adam Shane Harrison. Both suspects are represented by court appointed attorneys.
The Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to 8980 Ridgecrest Drive in reference to a stabbing call just before 4 a.m. on May 2, 2016. Upon arrival they found Harrison, 28, deceased in the yard of the residence from apparent stab wounds.
“The victim in this case was stabbed at least eight times in the abdomen, chest, thigh and buttock after having a gun fired in the direction of his head,” Logan County District Attorney Laura Austin Thomas said in a statement. “This occurred after the victim fought off attempts of Sanchez and Chisholm to duct tape his legs together.“
Judge Susan Worthington found probable cause to believe a crime was committed and probable cause that the defendants committed the crime.
Both suspects will face their first trial court arraignment on Feb. 3 at 9 a.m.
Tabatha Vi Nicole Lehr (centered in the picture above) is charged with accessory to commit murder. She has pleaded not guilty and is expected back in court on Friday.
“Lehr drove the killers from the scene of the murder to a hotel where they cleaned their clothes and bodies, partied and then took one of the killers, Chisholm, to another location while staying with Sanchez. Evidence of the crime was maintained in her vehicle,” Austin Thomas said.
