It was a busy morning for court officials in Buchanan County. Between two judges, 36 criminal defendants were arraigned.

Among those arraigned Tuesday were five people charged in connection with the beating death of Jason Davies, the 38-year-old St Joe man fatally beaten earlier this month and then dumped in the Missouri River.

 

Preliminary hearings were scheduled October 17 for Martin Rilinger and Robert Jarrell on charges of 2nd Degree murder. They remain in custody under $250,000 bond each. Prosecutors say they beat Davies to death with a frying pan and a baseball bat during a fight in an apartment in the 800 block of North 13th on September 15.

Dollie Williams, accused of cleaning up the bloody apartment. She’s charged with evidence tampering, and is due back in court next week, with a preliminary hearing scheduled November 1st. She remains in custody under $40,000 bond.

Also charged with evidence tampering are Patricia Butler and Billy Wilson, for allegedly supplying the wheel barrow used to dispose of the body. Court documents assert that Butler witnessed the beating, then called Wilson, her brother, to ask for help disposing the body. Wilson allegedly suggested they dump it in the river, and offered a wheel barrow to move the body.

Butler has been freed on bond pending a preliminary hearing November 15. Wilson remains in custody, awaiting a preliminary hearing October 29.

    I agree an eye for an eye and the 3 who are being charged with tampering with evidence should also be charged with accessory to murder

    Jason was son, a husband, a brother to 3 siblings, he had heart, he made mistakes hes paid his debt, he was a good friend, he had a few enimies, he worked hard played even harder, he was really funny, but did get angry! JASON DOUGLAS DAVIES WAS A HUMANE BEING! I HOPE THAT ALL FIVE OF THESE PEOPLE SEE THIS WHEN THERE JUDGEMENT DAY COMES! HE IS MISSED BY THE PEOPLE WHO NEW & LOVED HIM!

    that was my brother and he may have made some mistakes in his life but I cannot or will not ever understand why or who thought he deserved to be beat to death and tossed in a river. on top of that this was done away from the state in which he is from so that all of us here in Colorado who are his family can be left without him and without the means to be able to have made sure that none of this ever happens. I hope all 5 of you rot in hell where you belong.
