GEORGETOWN — A Scott County judge recused himself Monday from a Georgetown shooting case because he said he knew the alleged shooter's mother, with whom he had worked in some organizations.
Scott Circuit Judge Robert Johnson rescheduled Jason St. Clair Wilson's arraignment for Friday morning.
A grand jury indicted Wilson, 27, of Georgetown, last month on five counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, attempted murder, first-degree burglary and two counts of first-degree assault.
Police say that on March 17, Wilson became upset when he found his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Buchanan with another man at a gathering at her home on King George Drive in Georgetown. Wilson allegedly started shooting after an altercation with Buchanan's male friend. Buchanan and another man who jumped in to help were shot. Four children, including three children Wilson has with Buchanan, and four adults were in the house at the time of the shooting.
Wilson was initially charged with two counts of attempted murder and six counts of wanton endangerment. But the grand jury amended one wanton endangerment charge to attempted murder. And the original attempted murder charges were reduced to first-degree assault.
