LEX 18 has learned more about the man accused of killing his step-father. Jonathon Watkins, 31, is charged in the death of Magoffin County Deputy Jailer Albert Bloomfield.
Friends say Watkins was at his step-father's house when he shot Bloomfield.
LEX 18 has learned that Watkins has a troubled past that includes fleeing and evading police, wanton endangerment and assault charges.
