Plans to tear down old Cole County jail and sheriff's house move forward April 16, 2014

Grand jury hands down indictments

The Cole County grand jury met this week and handed down a number of indictments, sending cases on to the circuit division for possible trials.

Those charged included:

• A man believed to have killed a man in an Apache Flats mobile home park last December.

Jose Hurtado, 22, California, is facing a second-degree murder charge in the killing of Francisco Navarro.

The sheriff’s department reported Navarro had gotten out of a truck to help its driver, Jesus Hernandez, who was being assaulted at 5101 W. Business 50.

The dispute apparently involved a complaint on how loud the muffler was on Hernandez’ truck, and how he had been driving his vehicle.

Officers said Hurtado shot Navarro once in the chest with a 9mm pistol.

• A Jefferson City woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars of lottery tickets from September through October 2011.
