On Jan. 18, a 54-count superseding indictment charged 15 members and associates of the Clarksville Mongols with racketeering conspiracy, murder, drug trafficking and other related crimes, according to the release.

On March 7, a 64-count second-superseding indictment charged four additional defendants with the kidnapping and murder of Stephen Cole, an estranged former member of the Mongols.

Those indictments detail allegations of violent criminal activity and drug trafficking in and around the Clarksville area beginning in about March 2015 and continuing until the return of the indictments, the release said.

The latest indictment charges two additional associates of the Clarksville Mongols:

  • Janie Lee, 22, of Owensboro, Kentucky, was charged with conspiracy to distribute large-scale quantities of methamphetamine, distribution and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, interstate travel in aid of racketeering, and money laundering.
  • Jessie Marie Decker, 33, of Trenton, Kentucky, was charged with previously indicted defendant William Nelper a/k/a “Flip,” with conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute marijuana, tampering with the grand jury investigation, and use of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime. Decker is separately charged with making false statements to law enforcement relating to the kidnapping and murder of Cole and as an accessory after the fact to the kidnapping.

The third-superseding indictment also brings additional charges against other previously indicted defendants: 

  • Robert Humiston aka “Bric,” is charged with possession of a short-barreled rifle in violation of the National Firearms Act (NFA) and with failure to register the firearm as required by the NFA.
  • Christopher Wilson is charged with two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm, drug trafficking conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute several different controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and use of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime.

This case is being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives; the Clarksville Police Department; the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation; and the Kentucky State Police.
