Protective order approved against victim in attempted murder case
The daughter of 52-year-old Jane Marie Shine, the alleged shooter in the July 14 attempted murder of 35-year-old Newton man Eric James, has filed a protective order in Jasper County Civil Court against James, her fiance and caretaker.
According to online court records, 31-year-old Danielle Shine filed the order on July 27. District Court Judge Randy Hefner approved the document, inhibiting James from having any contact with Danielle Shine. Its contents were sealed from public record the same day, and a spokeswoman for the Jasper County Clerk of Courts Office confirmed the confidential nature of the file this morning. Online records show a comment hearing scheduled for the protective order at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 13.
Jane Shine made accusations in a request for bond reduction filed July 16 that James had begun using methamphetamine and recently had become increasingly violent against her daughter. Jane Shine has since been released from the Jasper County Jail prior to her Oct. 3 trial. The shooter’s daughter is a quadriplegic and depends on James as caretaker. She also wrote an unnamed friend of Danielle Shine saw James put a 9 mm handgun to his fiancee’s head.
