A Grimes County man has been found guilty of a 2016 murder in the county and has been sentenced to life in prison.
The man found guilty is 45 year old James Daniel Green of Bedias, who was found guilty of the murder. Another man, 26 year old Colton Joe Manning of Madisonville, was arrested alongside Green for the 2016 murder of Jason Currie.
According to the probable cause statement, Green and Manning were supposedly meeting Currie for a drug deal, where Green admitted that he and Manning shot Currie, loaded his body into Green’s truck and dumped it at one location. The next day, they moved the body to a creek bed off County Road 142.
Currie was reported missing on June 25th, 2016 and his remains were discovered off County Road 142 on July 13, 2016.
The trail for Manning will begin later this year.
