Case vs. firefighter nearing trial

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

Platte County Prosecutor Tammy Glick says her office is ready to go to trial in the case against an Edgerton-Trimble volunteer firefighter accused of second degree murder.

"We're ready to go," Glick said last week about the case against Jason Hendrix, who is accused of starting a fire that led to the death of Dearborn Fire Department member Travis Brown. Brown was killed when the pumper truck on which he was riding overturned while responding to the blaze along Route B and Malcolm Lake Road on a mutual aid call.

Hendrix remains incarcerated in Platte County. There will be a docket call involving his case on May 10, at which time the judge wants to ensure the discovery process is proceeding, Glick said.

The trial for Hendrix is scheduled to begin on June 24.
