A jury trial is set for June of next year in Henry County for a man from Ava, charged with killing a teenager from Republic.
Twenty-nine year old Christopher Jorgensen was charged with first degree murder, armed criminal action and abandonment of a corpse after the body of 17-year old Kenny Stout was found last December near the Ava Country Club with multiple stab wounds. Jorgensen’s case was moved out of Douglas County on a change of venue. Online court records indicate that as of Tuesday, Jorgensen is represented by a new attorney. His trial is set for June 18th.
Facing similar charges in the case is 26-year old Nathan Jensen of Seymour. Jensen’s case was transferred to Pulaski County. His trial is not set at this time.
