Three charged in kidnapping
Hendrixson 11
The sheriff's department has arrested three Dowelltown men and charged them with kidnapping a man and woman and beating them with an axe handle Friday. Sheriff Patrick Ray said 42-year-old Jimmy Tolbert (J.J.) Hendrixson, Jr., 36-year-old Casey Joseph Jacobs, and 48-year-old Comas Brian Higgins all face two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping. The three allegedly met the victims at a New Bildad Road bridge the night of July 18 and attacked them with an axe handle, tied them up and taped their mouths.
