2 CHARGED IN MCCALLA ASSAULT CASE

Two people from Jefferson County are charged with second-degree assault after another man was shot and stabbed at a home on Eastern Valley Road in Tuscaloosa County.

Deputies responded to a call at approximately 11:40 p.m. on Jan. 5 where they found an injured male victim. The victim, 48, was shot twice in the back, once in the knee, and was stabbed in the back several times, according to a deposition. He was unable to tell deputies where or by whom he was assaulted.

Four days later, Sherry Lovejoy contacted Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit Investigator Glenn Morrison, saying she was a witness to the shooting and stabbing that occurred. She told Morrison that it started as an altercation between the victim and Larry Jacobs and Jacobs’ girlfriend, Kaci Norred.

“During the altercation Norred stabbed [the victim]and Jacobs shot him in the back,” the deposition read.

When investigators contacted Jacobs, 49 of McCalla, to get a statement, he declined. Norred, 26 of Bessemer, admitted to stabbing the victim, saying Jacobs shot him because the victim was assaulting Lovejoy.

Norred and Jacobs were charged Friday. Jacobs posted $10,000 bond and was released that day, while Norred was released on a $5,000 bond.
