A Dillon Beach man was charged in Marin County Superior Court today with killing a man who was having a relationship with his roommate. Ken Neville, 56, did not enter a plea to the shooting murder of 19-year-old Stachaun Jackson at a trailer at the Lawson’s Landing campground on Thursday. Neville is scheduled for a plea entry and bail hearing on April 8, Chief Deputy District Attorney Barry Borden said.
Neville also is charged with personal use of a firearm and intentional discharge of a firearm causing great bodily injury, Borden said. The Marin County Sheriff’s Office received a call about the shooting at 2:30 a.m. last Thursday. Jackson was pronounced dead at the scene. Neville lived in the trailer with a 53-year-old man who was having a relationship with Jackson, Marin County sheriff’s Lt. Jamie Scardina said.
The two older men had been living in the trailer since June 2013. Jackson was initially a guest but moved in about a month later, according to Carl Vogler, a co-owner of Lawson’s Landing. Scardina said deputies responded to a disturbance at the trailer in July 2013, and one of the three occupants was taken in for a mental health evaluation. Neville is being held in the county jail without bail.
