Default Columbus, OH WM, 25 dies 6 days after shot in head by colored boy Playstation transaction


Teen may be tried as an adult given a long criminal history
Thursday, March 28th 2019

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A Columbus teen is facing some serious time if he's convicted of murder. Prosecutors want to try, Kyvion Jacobs as an adult, given his lengthy criminal history.

On Thursday, ABC6/FOX28 saw his family by his side, hoping to get him out of jail.

“Kyvion is present in court today for a preliminary hearing on delinquency allegations of aggravated robbery and aggravated murder,” said the judge as he started Jacobs’ preliminary hearing.

The 17-year-old sat quietly in court as he heard his charges. Next to him was his public defender and his grandmother, who has sole custody of him. Court documents show that he's been in and out of the juvenile detention center since he was 14 years old. He was “disobedient,” “would come and go as he pleases,” and incorrigible. He's been charged with a felony of receiving stolen property. Then, more serious crimes started March of this year: brandishing a firearm, aggravated robbery, and now being charged with murder.

“Your honor at this time I would ask for the young man to be maintained,” the prosecutor stated in court.

On March 6th Columbus Police said Jacobs met 25-year-old Kyle Haseley in the Linden area to buy a PS3. They connected through a social media app, called “offer-up.” Then, police said Jacobs robbed Haseley and shot him in the head. He died six days later. Jacobs' grandmother was willing to take him home so he would stay out of the juvenile detention center.

On the night of March 6, 2019, 25-year-old Kyle Haseley was shot along East 21st Avenue in the Linden neighborhood. He was pronounced dead March 12, 2019. (Courtesy: Haseley family)
