Ashtabula County Grand Jury indictments

Windsor Township men accused of shooting Amish teenagers indicted on multiple counts

JEFFERSON — EDITOR’S Note: The indictment of a person by a grand jury or otherwise is an accusation only and that person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. All information is taken from Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court records.

Two Windsor Township men accused of shooting two Amish teenagers in late July, have been indicted, by an Ashtabula County Grand Jury, on multiple counts of felonious assault.

Michael C. Jamesoån, 30, of 6044 Huntley Road, Windsor Township was indicted on 11 counts of felonious assault with a gun specification. Kenneth C. Jameson, 61, also of the Huntley Road address, was indicted on 13 counts of felonious assault with a gun specification.

The shooting occurred at the Huntley Road property shortly after 11 p.m. on July 27.

The victims were both passengers in an Amish transport van with a driver and eight other passengers. The van reportedly went to the Jameson residence to get a radio from a barn on the property. Kenneth and Michael Jameson noticed the vehicle on the property, which they reportedly believed to be trespassing. They allegedly began firing multiple rounds from a handgun and shotgun at the van, striking the van and seriously injuring the two victims, reports show.
