As a second man is charged with murder down in Douglas County, a different version of what played out during a murder in Ava is revealed.
New information in the murder of 17-year-old Kenny Stout in Douglas County: Chris Jorgensen and Nathan Jensen met with Stout about a drug deal. Court records show they took Stout to a wooded area near Ava, beat him with bats, and left him for dead. When they came back several hours later, he was still alive. That’s when Jorgensen stabbed him to death. Stout’s funeral was this afternoon in Ava.
