An Evansville judge has ruled a man accused in a string of crimes will have one trial instead of having a seperate trial for each crime.
John Vernon Jackson Jr. is accused of murder, attempted murder, and robbery in a crime spree that spanned four days in December of 2013. The question is whether there are similar circumstances that tie Jackson's crimes together.
Indiana law allows separately charged cases with a common thread to be tried together.
