A man involved in a fatal hunting accident Nov. 19 will face charges of involuntary manslaughter and reckless conduct.

A Grand Jury in Jo Daviess County returned the two-count indictment today (Jan. 6) against Kelly G. Jackson, 53, of East Dubuque, Il.

Jackson is charged with firing the shot that killed John P. Hanlon of Inverness and his son.

Hanlon was killed by a single gunshot wound to the abdomen Nov. 19, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The shooting occurred at around 5:33 a.m., before legal shooting hours.

Hanlon’s teenage son was struck by the same shot.

He was treated and released from Finley Hospital in Dubuque, Iowa.

All three men were deer-hunting on the same property, located at 17630 U.S. 20 in East Dubuque but were not hunting together.

The Grand Jury issued a two-count indictment for the offenses of involuntary manslaughter, a Class 3 felony (punishable 2-5 years in jail and or up to $25,000 in fines), and reckless conduct, a Class A misdemeanor (six months to a year in jail and or up to $2,500 in fines), against Jackson. 

Jackson also was issued citations by the Illinois Conservation Police for deer hunting prior to legal hunting hours, a Class A misdemeanor,  and unlawful possession of a loaded shotgun prior to legal deer hunting hours, a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by one to 6 months in jail and or up to $1,500 in fines.
