Lawton Man Comes Clean Over Former Gobles Man's Death

A 24-year old Lawton man has turned himself after detectives questioned his involvement in the death of a 23-year old former Gobles man. Seth Jones gave himself up this week, saying he and Dakota Kearns were stealing street signs in Almena Township back in October. It was found Kearns, while attempting to steal the signs, rode on top of Jones' vehicle. Kearns fell off, hitting his head on the ground, and died of the injuries. Jones was arraigned on a felony charge of Reckless Driving Causing Death and Failing to Report a Fatal Traffic Crash. He's posted bond. The case is now in the hands of the Prosecutor's Office awaiting the next court hearing. Kearns was here visiting family. He had been living in Missouri.
