77 indicted
Grand jury indictments were handed down last week on three men accused of the kidnapping and beating of a man and woman in July. The DeKalb County Grand Jury met on Nov. 24 and indicted 77 people, including 42-year-old Jimmy Tolbert (J.J.) Hendrixson, Jr., 36-year-old Casey Joseph Jacobs, and 48-year-old Comas Brian Higgins, charging all three men with two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping each. Sheriff Patrick Ray said the trio were taken into custody after an alleged July 18 incident in which they reportedly met the victims at a New Bildad Road bridge and attacked them with an axe handle, tied them up, and taped their mouths.
