A Roane County man, 51-year-old Teddy McClain, has been indicted by a Roane County Grand Jury for involuntary manslaughter in the shooting death of his step-son. McClain was charged with shooting Jason Mace, 22, on Triplett Road last January. (See Hur Herald ARCHIVES 1/24/02)

Young Mace returned to the McClain household in the early morning hours, after which McClain apparently shot him to death with a .44 magnum. Police found Mace's body in a doorway of the front porch. McClain reportedly told police he shot in self-defense.

Mace's mother, Debbie Boyle Mace, died of cancer a few months before the shooting.
