Kason King Sentenced to Two Life Sentences With Parole for the Murder of Jarrad Smith in 2013
Kason King will spend life in prison with the possibility of parole for killing Jarrad Smith in 2013.
The victim’s family said it’s not the verdict they wanted, but at least King is behind bars.
“We didn’t get exactly what we wanted. We wanted life without parole, but we did get justice. I think we are all good with that and it’s finally over,” said Rose Smith, The Victim’s Mother.
On June 9 2013, King walked into a house on Chambers County Road 153 where he shot and murdered Smith with a shotgun while he was in the shower with King’s ex girlfriend, Paige Adamson.
King kidnapped Adamson at gunpoint and threatened to kill her before she was able to escape and call for help.
After the trial in May 2018, a jury found King guilty of murder, burglary, unlawful imprisonment and domestic violence.
Smith’s mother shared some words with the courtroom before the judge read King’s sentencing.
“Son, we all miss you each and every day. We know you’re watching us from above, we feel your presence each and every day. We will always cherish your memories and know you are watching all of us from up above. Love your ma, family and friends,” read Rose Smith.
King will be serving two life sentences with the possibility of parole for the murder and burglary conviction, 12 months in the Chambers County jail for unlawful imprisonment and 15 years in prison for domestic violence.
We also asked King’s family if they wanted to comment on the outcome, but they declined to answer our questions.
