That was the day after the father of the alleged assault victim was fatally shot at a Trenton residence.

Court records from Sullivan county say Jameson Read and Ryan Vencill, both 24, allegedly committed first degree assault and caused physical injury to 17 year old Tristan Vencill of Trenton. The Sullivan county associate judge set bonds at 100 thousand dollars cash for Read and for Ryan Vencill—both of whom are held in jail.

Jameson (Jamie) Read also faces charges in Grundy County of second degree murder for allegedly shooting 52 year old John Vencill July 3rd. Ryan and Tristan Vencill are sons of John Vencill whose funeral was held at Trenton Thursday afternoon.

There's no bond for Read on the murder charge. That shooting, Police Chief Tommy Wright said, occurred at Read's residence in the 23 hundred block of Speedway in Trenton.

On-line court records indicate Jameson Read and Ryan Vencill shared an apartment at 23-04 Speedway Avenue.

Sullivan county sheriff's department says the felony crime of assault occurred July 4th outside
the residence of James Bowe in Humphreys after Ryan Vencill allegedly lured his younger brother to go with him on the pretense of picking up some property at the Bowe residence for their father.

55 year old Bowe faces two counts of unlawful possession of a firearm. His bond is 50 thousand
dollars cash only. Bowe is to appear in the associate division circuit court in Milan on July 18th.

A statement filed in court Thursday by the Sullivan county sheriff's office said—after questioning suspects—that Jameson Read is accused of using a hammer to hit Tristan Vencill-once on the left shoulder and once on the back of the head. The sheriff's department said Ryan Vencill is accused of conspiring with Read to have Tristan Vencill “roughed” up.

During the incident, it was alleged that the victim (Tristan) had been restrained with plastic wire ties on his wrists and knees. The report also indicates Tristan Vencill was injured and reportedly bleeding from the back of his head. The extent of his injuries wasn't learned by KTTN although the youth was reportedly seen at his father's funeral.
