Yes I seen the news but honestly I been listen to our local news because they have more correct info. Not saying that news 14 or ne Evansville news id wrong just that I rather get it from the local source. & I dunno why they said he didn't know him because Danny has lived next to them for years! He might not of known Jacob as much as he knew his father but still. That had to be a mis print

The whole thing is beyond tragic, on so many levels. It was supposedly random, these were two young people with their whole lives ahead of them. This young man was MARRIED (doesn't matter if they were "separated, he was still MARRIED), this poor young man is accused by many of killing this girl, his family has to deal the accusations along with the agony of not knowing where he is, his wife has to deal with not only his death but the humiliation of her husband being murdered while he is out camping with an underaged high school girl, and this underaged girl is with a MARRIED man. And to be murdered is bad, but to be murdered while in adultery is the ultimate tragedy. I pray God gave them time to repent before their souls left their bodies.:-(

I am confused. How is praying that God have mercy on them considered "judging" them? Only God can judge. We are to pray for others. Being murdered does not wipe out one's transgressions in the eyes of God. It is sad, yes, but it really has little bearing on the state of your soul when you die, unless God grant you the grace needed to repent of any really terrible sins right before you draw your last breath. I am not wishing ill on anyone. I hope justice is served on their killer and that these two did find God's mercy.

Thank you unselfish heart! Legal age is 17 in Illinois. He was only 22! & married or not, he wasnt together with his wife! The only one that should be ashamed or embarrassed here is the man who killed them! Jake & Jessi were in love! So sit back & keep ur "non judgment" havin ass quite. Us, his family & friends, know what type of man he was. You don't!

EVANS WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTED; DETAILS OF CRIME ARE “BIZARRE; FRIGHTENING”

By JACK HOWSER
Published: 8:29 am, September 4, 2012

Jessica Evans
WHITE CO.—The 17-year-old girl who was a victim of homicide during a weekend camping and fishing trip was also sexually assaulted, according to information turned up in the investigation.

Jessica Evans was the victim of this alleged crime, this, information reveals, occurring after her boyfriend, Jacob Wheeler, 22, was shot in the head.

Information just filed in the case by White County State’s Attorney T. Scott Webb contains five separate counts of First Degree Murder of both Evans and Wheeler; two counts of Aggravated Battery with a Firearm; one count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault; and one count of Concealing a Homicidal Death.

Danny Coston, 36, of Centerville, charged with the crimes, is scheduled to appear in front of the judge in White County this morning at 9:30.

WHITE CO.—While there were several present in support of Jacob Wheeler and Jessica Evans, the majority of the large courtroom
Craig Poole and Doug Maier escort Danny K. Coston to the courthouse this morning for Coston’s first advisement of charges
this morning held supporters of Danny K. Coston as Coston’s first advisement of charges went underway at about 9:32.
This fact created a palpable amount of tension and prompted a host of police officials to pull security in the courtroom, as well as to and from the jail for Coston’s walk from there to the courthouse. Coston, however was not wearing a bulletproof vest as many murder suspects have in recent cases around the area. Seven deputies and/or police officers/ISP troopers took up various positions in the courtroom when Coston was brought in.
Coston, appearing ruddy-faced, was patted on the back in what appeared to be a reassuring gesture by Sheriff Doug Maier as he ascended the couple of steps up to the area that lead to the jury box. And as Coston took his seat, a man in the crowd shouted out to him “We love you Danny! We all love you.”
That very thing was addressed by Judge Tom Sutton, however, when he took the bench.
Sutton advised that there would be no outbursts of any kind in his courtroom, and that anyone who made any kind of remark, gesture, or anything at all disruptive would be removed.
That said, Sutton read the charges to Coston, and judging by the gasps and weeping in the courtroom, it was the first time many had heard the news that there was a sexual assault charge in the midst of the murder charges.
Coston is charged with five Class M felonies of First Degree Murder in the shooting deaths of Wheeler and Evans. Class M felonies are not probationable and carry with them a sentence of 20 to 60 years in DOC each. The first count is First Degree Murder with intent to kill or do great bodily harm to Jacob Wheeler; the second count is First Degree Murder for shooting Wheeler knowing such act would cause his death; and the third count is First Degree Murder for shooting Wheeler knowing that such act created a strong probability of death or great bodily harm to Wheeler.
Count 4 is First Degree Murder in the shooting of Evans, alleging intent to kill or do great bodily harm to her; and the fifth count is First Degree Murder in the shooting of Evans knowing such act would cause her death.

It’s important to note that these separate counts are done in this way because of separate actions Coston is alleged to have taken just prior to what authorities believe is the separate shootings. It’s not legalese, nor is it “stacking” of charges hoping that if one doesn’t stick, another will. As the court proceedings unfold, more will be learned about the actions authorities alleged Coston took leading up to the shootings, and the wording will make more sense.
Count 6 is perhaps the most disturbing count.
The count lists that Coston “committed the offense of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Assault in that he committed an act of sexual penetration (sexual intercourse) by threat of force and personally discharged a firearm during the commission of the offense, which proximately caused the death of Jessica M. Evans.”
The wording of this leads a reasonable person to infer that Coston is alleged to have killed Evans while he was raping her.
Much has been made about the fact that White County coroner Carl McVey advised that there was “no other trauma” to the body of Jessica Evans, thus leading many to believe that she was not sexually assaulted. However, Disclosure did ask authorities last week if Evans was sexually assaulted, and was told she was not. Apparently that was an integral part of the investigation that they didn’t want out in the public, since they appeared to believe, as the week wore on, that they had their eye on the suspect. Under the circumstances, we believe this is understandable. However, many have expressed outrage, especially since so many days went by with the possibility that there was a killer walking free among the populace, and it might’ve helped to have been informed that the alleged killer might also be considered an alleged rapist.
Counts 7 and 8 are Aggravated Battery with a Firearm, in that Coston, while allegedly committing a battery,“knowingly and by means of discharging a firearm” that caused the death of Wheeler in Count 7, and Evans in Count 8.
Finally, Count 9 is Concealment of Homicidal Death, in that Coston is alleged to have knowingly concealed the murder of Wheeler by “transporting his remains from the murder scene in White County to a remote location in Wayne County, and in so doing intended to prevent or delay the discovery of the death” of Wheeler.

I feel so very sorry for Coston's family, but really, if he CONFESSED, hollering your support in front of the grieving families wasn't very nice. I know they are grieving as well, but they need to respect the victim's families.
