Thorntown man charged in Lebanon triple homicide in September

·1 min read

A Thorntown man has been arrested and charged with murder in the September killings of three people found dead in an apartment in Lebanon.

Boone County law enforcement officials on Wednesday announced Chad Grimball has been charged with three counts of murder and several firearm offenses in the triple homicide.

Officers discovered the grisly scene Sept. 8 at the apartment in the 400 block of East Walnut Street after receiving a report that three people may be dead. Inside they found Larry Stogsdill Jr., his son Brannon Martin and his son's girlfriend Grace Bishop fatally shot in their heads.

Police served Grimball, 40, his arrest warrant in the killings in Boone County Jail, where he has been held since October on an unrelated gun possession charge.

Boone County prosecutors said it will determine in the coming weeks whether to pursue a life sentence without parole or the death penalty in Grimball's case.
