Homicide Charges Filed Against Jackson County Man


Homicide charges were filed Monday against a Jackson County man in connection to a crash more than three months ago.

Donald Ames, 24, was charged four counts: two of them, homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle.

According to an initial investigation, a pickup driven by Ames was going north on County Road G in the Town of Northfield when he failed to navigate a corner and the truck left the road. The pickup hit a power pole and appears to have rolled several times.

The complaint states Ames’ passenger, identified by authorities as Tyler Pientok of Whitehall, was killed in the crash.

An initial appearance for Ames is scheduled for April 15.
