Jury selection will begin in Buchanon County on October 6, 2015, with the jury being brought here for trial on October 13. The Barton County Circuit Courtroom has been booked for a couple of weeks for the trial.
Barton County Prosecuting Attorney Steven Kaderly is seeking the death penalty. Bourne is represented by Thomas Jacquinot and Patrick Berrigan public defenders who specialize in capital cases.
Bourne is currently serving a 15-year sentence, which was handed down in Cedar County after he admitted he had violated his probation by not attending a court-ordered Batterer Intervention Program.
As noted earlier in the Turner Report, Bourne was on probation for charges of domestic assault, assault on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest when Adriaunna Horton was raped and murdered..
As noted in the August 22 Turner Report, Bourne remained free even after he was arrested in Dade County after being charged with assault on an underage girl and assaulting the girl's mother.
During a hearing earlier this year, prosecutors indicate Bourne raped and murdered Adriaunna Horton as revenge because Adriaunna's father had an affair with Bourne's wife while Bourne was serving time for another crime.
