Man charged in triple murder appears in court

LAKE CITY, KY (KFVS) - A triple murder case has been sent to a Livingston County Grand Jury.

According to the Livingston Circuit District Clerk’s Office, the triple murder case against Jackie Clint Doom was sent to a Grand Jury on Thursday, Jan. 3 during a preliminary hearing.

The Commonwealth Attorney says the Grand Jury could hear the case in 60 days from this date, but this could change.

On Thursday, Doom was also in court for an arraignment on an alcohol intoxication charge from the same night as the triple murder.

During the court proceeding a pre-trial was set for Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 a.m. in Livingston County.

Three people died after an apparent shooting in Livingston County, Ky. on Friday night, Dec. 21.

Doom, 29 of Grand Rivers, Ky., was charged with three counts of murder in court on Thursday, December 27 in McCracken County.

According to officials with the Livingston County Circuit Clerk’s office, the case was moved for security reasons.

Doom was appointed a public defender, but he could hire his own attorney.

He is being held at the McCracken County Jail on a $3 million cash only bond.

On Friday, Dec. 21, Kentucky State Police received a call around 8:18 p.m. about a person that was dead in a home on Stringtown Road near Lake City.

Once authorities arrived on scene, it was discovered that January G. Stone, 38 of Grand Rivers, Ky., Robert G. Belt, Jr., 28 of Burna, Ky. and Johnny G. Mallory, 49 of Paducah, Ky. were all in the home with gunshot wounds.

The Livingston County Coroner arrived and pronounced all three dead at the scene. An autopsy revealed that all victims died of gunshot wounds.

Shortly after receiving the call for the incident on Stringtown Road, Livingston County Sheriff’s Department received a call from a person claiming to have knowledge of the people killed.

Deputies then responded and detained Doom.

KSP was assisted on scene by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and the Livingston County Coroner’s Office.
