October 2015 trial date set for accused killer/rapist of Adriaunna Horton

October 2015 trial dates have been set for Bobby Bourne, 36, Lockwood, who is charged with first degree murder, kidnapping, and statutory rape in connection with the August 19, 2013, death of 12-year-old Adriaunna Horton of Golden City.

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.

I am deeply saddened over the death of Adriaunna Horton. I can not understand how one human being can do that to any child who cannot defend thenselves. Bobby Bourne jr claims that Adriaunna's father had an affair with his wife, you do not abduct a helpless child, rape and murder that child for revenge, Bourne is a sick man doing this to an innocent child. It was not revenge but an obvious case of a paedophile attacking an innocent child which was premeditated. I hope that Bourne gets what he deserves, the bible says and eye for an eye.

All my sympathies and sincere condolences go out to the family, relatives, loved ones and friends of lillte Andriaunna, an innocent child who had to endure fear, pain and a massive amount of trauma before having her life taken by a sick paedophile. R.I.P Adriaunna, you will always be in the thoughts of many people, even mine.
