Police found Shumate’s body around 4:15 a.m. on February 21st, 2010.
He was found guilty of First Degree Murder and Armed Habitual Criminal on June 16th, 2021.
Jackson is already serving a 30 year prison sentence on the charges of Armed Habitual Criminal, Aggravated Fleeing to Elude, Felon in Possession of a Weapon, and Criminal Damage to State Supported Property.
He has a pending trial for a March 31st, 2010, incident in which he allegedly fired 25 rifle rounds in the parking lot of an Applebee’s at 6845 E. State Street, injuring a 31-year-old man.
