    An Indiana man is accused of beating an Afghanistan war veteran to death with a bar stool — and bragging about it — for allegedly “making a gay move on him.”

    Jabreeh Davis-Martin was charged with murder in the Jan. 16 beating death of 28-year-old Jodie Henderson, reported the South Bend Tribune.


    The 23-year-old Davis-Martin was arrested Feb. 18 on unrelated handgun and marijuana charges, about a week before the county coroner finally ruled the former Army National Guardsman had died from multiple blunt-force and chop injuries.

    The autopsy also showed acute alcohol intoxication and exposure to the cold could have contributed to Henderson’s death.

    Davis-Martin made his initial court appearance Monday in the case.

    Prosecutors said Davis-Martin attacked Henderson after a third person told him the veteran loved him in a romantic way.


    He confronted Henderson and attacked him with a bar stool, then left to go to a party — where he bragged about killing the man for his same-sex attraction, investigators said.

    Prosecutors said Davis-Martin returned and found Henderson lying outside his home in a fetal position, and he stomped on the injured man until he was pulled off by friends.

    His body was found the following morning lying in the street.

    Investigators said they had video evidence of Henderson talking about his feelings of love toward Davis-Martin, whose mother warned him not “mess with her son like that.”

    Witnesses told police that they overheard Davis-Martin tell his mother over the phone to clean up blood on the porch where he attacked Henderson.

    Davis-Martin was not charged with a hate crime in the fatal beating because Indiana does not have a hate statute on the books.

    “If I kill a person in Indiana because I want your wallet, I committed murder,” said Ken Cotter, the St. Joseph County prosecutor. “If I kill a person because I don’t like how you look, I’ve committed a murder. If a kill a person because some person has conveyed their romantic feelings towards me, I still committed a murder.”

    Henderson served in the 381st military police company with the Indiana National Guard, including a one-year tour in Afghanistan.

    This was the biggest take away for me from the whole article.

    Friends were able to pull Davis-Martin off Henderson but these same people did not help Henderson by simply calling the police or ambulance and he was found in the street the next morning.

    You never know, to feel that level of comfort to publicly share and also with someone's mother makes me wonder if Davis-Martin hadn't in some way encouraged those feelings.
    I have a couple of straight buddies who do and say some really gay confusing shyt. I could see someone much younger than me in these positions feeling encouraged to explore what they think they see.

    This is disgusting. If the mom cleaned up blood and new anything about this she should face charges as well for complicity at the least. The friends he was with who pulled him of the stomping should face charges as well for letting him die like that and leaving him exposed and not notifying anyone. There are laws regarding that too-they could have contributed to his death.

    But I bet this prosecutor does nothing like any of that-because he was just a gay man and a black man too. They won't do anything 'extra'...but if he was a wealthy white gay man they would probably face pressure to do it and might do it.

    I've NEVERRRR understood that obsession. For me, majority of the dudes I'm attracted to {sadly for me} end up being straight, but I've never purposely gone after a straight dude. For what??? But, some gay dudes LOVE it. SMDH

    "...but if he was a wealthy white gay man they would probably face pressure to do it and might do it"

    This reminds me of the situation with a dude that killed my grandfather right after I was born. My grandfather's BF (He was bi-sexual) stabbed him 45 times, and apparently killed a few dudes after him and nobody did anything, but when he killed a well off white guy all of a sudden he got arrested and locked in jail for life. smh

    I was going to comment on this part. I don't get why guys even try to find gay guys in straight places-like a supermarket. Unless you KNOW they are gay it can be a dangerous game. Just 'trying' to find out if they are 'down' could be misconstrued by some idiot homophobe as 'coming on to them' and get you attacked or killed. It is just not worth it.

    You would have to be very very good at that type of thing to be sure you would not be taken the wrong way and there is no way I would take that chance. They are strangers and you have no idea of whether or not they are some kind of psychopath just waiting for a reason to go completely batshit insane.

    Well anyone who is honest about these things knows that is the way it has been and to a somewhat lesser extent, it still is that way. It is terrible and unfair but that is the reality. Even if it is a generalization, it still is the reality overall. You cannot change anything until you face up to the reality of things. Many white people do not want to do this. They will point to specifics that don't fit the narrative and avoid adding all of the things up together-which WILL fit the narrative.

    As I have said, I have been involved with the criminal justice system and you could not find a better example of white privilege and how it helped someone. That made me not just think that blacks were treated differently in the criminal justice system-from sentencing all the way down to traffic stops-I then knew it was true. There was no other explanation and too many times I got different (better) treatment.

    It was not only race, it was also perceived socio-economic status. I found that out to be true as well.
