Man indicted for voluntary manslaughter against brother

CHARLES TOWN – A North Carolina man who allegedly punched his brother, resulting in his death, in a Charles Town hotel, was one of 37 people indicted this week by a Jefferson County grand jury.

Christopher Blake Jacobs, 28, was indicted on one count of voluntary manslaughter and one count of malicious wounding for allegedly killing his brother, Ronnie Jacobs, at America’s Best Value Inn on April 30, 2011.
According to the criminal complaint filed by Corporal Tracy Harrison of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department, Deputy R. Rjasko responded to a possible battery complaint at the hotel and, upon arriving at the scene, learned that Ronnie Jacobs was being flown to Fairfax Hospital.
Christopher Jacobs along with two other men, Shelton Jones and Thomas Oxendine, were staying at the hotel with Ronnie Jacobs while doing contract work at the Charles Town Racetrack, according to the complaint.
Jones said an argument between Ronnie and Christopher Jacobs about food escalated and Christopher Jacobs punched Ronnie Jacobs in the face. Ronnie Jacobs fell through the doorway and hit his head on the cement outside of the hotel room.
All three then said they carried the unconscious Ronnie Jacobs to a bed and then left to get food at a local gas station. Christopher Jacobs told investigators that he did not call 911, according to the report.
Ronnie Jacobs was later declared dead at 12:10 p.m.
