Trial date set for Shine in July 14 attempted murder case
An Oct. 3 trial has been set in the attempted murder case of 52-year-old Newton woman Jane Marie Shine.
According to online court records, the trial was scheduled during a preliminary hearing Monday in Jasper County District Court. Media outlets reported Monday afternoon that Shine’s bond had been reduced from $100,000 to $50,000, but court records show and a spokesperson from the Jasper County Jail said this morning Shine’s bond amount remains unchanged. She is still being held in jail Tuesday.
The 52-year-old Shine made accusations in a request for bond reduction filed July 16 that her victim, 35-year-old Eric James of Newton, was using methamphetamine and recently had become increasingly violent against her daughter Danielle Marie Shine. The shooter’s daughter is a quadriplegic and depends on James as caretaker. Shine also wrote in the court document that an unnamed friend of Danielle Shine saw James put a 9 mm handgun to his fiance’s head.
The shooting occurred at approximately 9:14 a.m. July 14. Newton police responded to a call at 511 E. 26th St. S., where investigators alleged that Shine entered James’ bedroom and shot him multiple times while he slept. According to interviews and evidence at the scene, police determined James was able to exit his bedroom and walk into the living room where Shine “shot him an additional time(s).”
James suffered multiple wounds from the shooting and was air-lifted to Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines. He has since been released from the hospital.
A Jasper County District Court judge also granted a no-contact order against Shine July 16, prohibiting the defendant from seeing or attempting to contact her daughter, James and her three grandchildren if and when she is released from the Jasper County Jail.
Jasper County Attorney Mike Jacobsen issued several additional charges Monday including two counts of child endangerment, use of a dangerous weapon and going armed with intent to injure.
Shine’s next court appearance is scheduled for Sept. 10.
