Arrests made in Bottoms' death
OWEN COUNTY-- Three people were arrested Friday in connection with the death of a Cunot youth.
A news release from Owen County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Greg Denny said Tabitha Jo Blake Lucas, 28, of Quincy, Tracy Lucas, 35, of Quincy and Mark Blake, 47, of Greencastle were arrested on warrants issued through the Owen County Prosecutor's Office.
Tabitha Lucas is charged with Class C felony failure to return to the scene of an accident resulting in death, while Tracy Lucas and Blake were both charged with Class D felony obstruction of justice.
The arrests stem from a Jan. 22 hit-and-run accident in which William Bottoms, 12, was killed as he was walking home from an event at the Cunot Community Center.
All three suspects were released on bond, and await their initial court appearance in Owen County Circuit Court.
