(Revised) Two Jasper County men, both former Laurel Police Department officers, have been arrested through indictments handed down over the past days by Jasper County Grand Jurys. One has been charged in the 2019 shooting death of 30-year-old Dominique Ann Henry of Jasper County. Both have been charged in the 2018 alleged beating of James Barnett who fled from the former officers from the Laurel area into Jasper County.
Christopher Wade Robertson, 28, and Anthony Brice Gilbert, 27, were both taken into custody by the Jasper County Sheriff's Department before 10 a.m. this morning (Tuesday). Robertson has been charged with manslaughter in the shooting death of Henry, as well as aggravated assault in the Barnett beating incident. Gilbert also has been charged with aggravated assault in the Barnett beating case.
Henry was killed on November 20, 2019 after allegedly banging on Robertson's residence door on Highway 528 early in the morning and stealing Robertson's wife's car.
Both Robertson and Gilbert were fired from the Laurel Police Department following the brutal assault of Barnett.
A Jasper County Second District Grand Jury handed down the indictment against Robertson in the Henry shooting death Monday. A Jasper County First District Grand Jury handed down the indictments against Robertson and Gilbert in the Barnett assault last Thursday.
