Charged – Arrested
The body of Jolene Harshbarger was found in the bathroom of her home early Sunday morning with knife wounds to her arms, upper back, and neck. Other injuries to her clearly pierced her hands, injuries that, according to the police, would have occurred while she was defending herself against her assailant.
Her autopsy showed “additional injuries indicating violent se**xual penetration,” according to Douglas County Prosecutor Rachael Henderson. Harshbarger’s adult son, who lived with her, was in her home at the time of her alleged murder, but was cleared of wrongdoing, police said.
Dejaynes-Beaman’s father, Daniel Beaman Jr., reportedly wept in court Wednesday as he discussed the character of his son: “He couldn’t do something like that, he can’t. Everyone who knows him says he’s an amazing kid, how well he behaves, his manners and stuff. ”
Dejaynes-Beaman allegedly admitted to stabbing Harshbarger during a “physical altercation” at her home. He suffered hand injuries. Authorities recovered the knife allegedly used in the attack.
The two met through one of the teenager’s aunts, according to police. Family members believe Dejaynes-Beaman received alcohol and methamphetamine on the night of the alleged attack.
Another Douglas County prosecutor, Brenda Beadle, told reporters, “I don’t have a reason why I don’t think I can ever think of a reason why someone would do this.”
