Preliminary hearing set for homicide case


LOCK HAVEN – Jamie Lynne Jackson, 36, of Lock Haven, requested a full preliminary hearing on homicide charges for the death of 9-year-old Anson Landon Mitchell Stover.

The hearing is scheduled for Jan. 21 at 1 p.m. at Magisterial District Judge Keith Kibler’s Office, 301 Frederick St., Lock Haven. Although the Clinton County Courts remain subject to a Judicial Emergency Order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jackson’s preliminary hearing is scheduled to be conducted in-person with restricted access to the courtroom.

Jackson was arrested on Dec. 2 just days after the alleged beaten and battered body of Anson Stover was found in a bathtub in an apartment at 657 E. Bald Eagle St., Lock Haven on Nov. 28.

Jackson was charged by Lock Haven City Det. Richard Simpson with criminal homicide and two counts aggravated assault, both Class 1 felonies.

She also faces a Felony 2 count of endangering the welfare of children and misdemeanor counts of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence, abuse of corpse and concealing death of a child.
