Grand Jury Indicts Duo on 1st Degree Murder Charges

A grand jury has returned an indictment against two men, charging them with first degree murder in connection to the death of a Virginia man. 

44-year-old Anthony Isham and 39-year-old John Isham were originally charged with second-degree.

The two men are accused of taking part in the brutal stabbing death of Harley Jacka in April of 2014. 

Jacka died after being stabbed fifteen times in the neck, face and chest. 

Two co-defendants, Bartholamy Drift and Janesse Peters, have pleaded guilty to second-degree murder charges for their role in Jacka’s death. 

Peters admitted to conspiring with Drift to kill Jacka because she didn’t want to be with him anymore. 

A jury trial for John Isham is expected to start on December 8. 

Anthony Isham will appear in court again on November 23.
