Murder Charges Against Springfield Man Dropped

SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A Springfield man has been released and murder charges dropped following a preliminary hearing yesterday, according to Jason White, Assistant District Attorney for the 19th Judicial District.

Back on July 29th, 21-year-old Javarious A. Turner was taken into custody and charged with two counts of Criminal Attempt to Commit Murder.

Turner was taken into custody transported to the Robertson County Detention Facility in Springfield under a half-million-dollar bond.

The charges stemmed from an incident that occurred on Raines Drive in Springfield MAP.

After hearing the evidence, Judge Joel Perry dropped all charges against Turner and he was set free.

According to Assistant District Attorney Jason White, Judge Perry in General Sessions Court did not find sufficient probable cause to send the case to Circuit Court so the charges against Turner were dropped without prejudice.

White added that Turner can now have the charge expunged, meaning that the arrest comes off his record.

The investigation of the shooting is ongoing.
