MORRISON CONVICTED OF MURDER

        Jared M. Morrison, age 25, was convicted in the Noble County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday, March 27, 2013 of the “Murder” of Tiffany Dawn Morrison which occurred on July 9, 2012.  Morrison was arrested by the Noble County Sheriff’s Office in the early morning hours of July 9, 2012 after 911 calls were made to the Sheriff’s Office indicating that Tiffany D. Morrison had been shot at their home at 702 Miller Street, Caldwell, Ohio.

         Morrison, appearing along with his attorney, Jack A. Blakeslee, entered a guilty plea to the sole count of the Indictment charging him with “Murder”.  Daniel G. Padden, Special Prosecuting Attorney requested the court to turn immediately to sentencing.  Morrison was sentenced to a term of imprisonment of 15 years to life imprisonment for his involvement in the above crime.

Padden stated that the negotiated plea was just and proper under the facts and circumstances of the case.  “The Grand Jury returned the Indictment against the Defendant, Jared M. Morrison for the charge of “Murder”.  After reviewing all of the evidence, meeting with all of the witnesses, and consulting the victim’s family and law enforcement, the negotiated plea was recommended to the court. The investigation conducted by Sheriff Hannum and his staff was very complete and thorough,” said Padden.

“By entering a negotiated plea to the charge, Tiffany’s family is spared all of the details of the events of July 9, 2012”, said Padden.

Morrison was remanded into the custody of the Noble County Sheriff’s Office to be transported to the Orient Correction Reception Center within the time prescribed by law.  Morrison was given credit for time served in the county jail since July 9, 2012 against the sentence.
