LEBANON, Ind. – A woman is under arrest for allegedly supplying the firearm an accused murderer used in the murder of three people in Lebanon last September.
Alicia Duff, 44, of Lebanon, is charged with providing a firearm to an ineligible person who receives the firearm and uses it in murder, a felony level 3. Duff also faces criminal charges of possession of methamphetamine.
According to court documents, Lebanese police said Duff purchased both the ammunition and the weapon used to kill Grace Bishop, 19, Brannon Martin, 20, and Larry Stogsdill Jr., 42, in early September in the 400 block. of East Walnut St.
Cham Grimball, 40, is accused of having shot each of the victims once in the head. He faces three counts of murder, as well as one count of carrying a handgun without a license, carrying a firearm without a license and unlawful possession of a firearm. by a domestic abuser.
Court documents say Duff allegedly told police she knew Grimball couldn’t own or buy a gun because of his April 2016 felony conviction.
A police investigation revealed footage of Duff going to the Rural King in Frankfort with Grimball where they can be seen buying the handgun less than three weeks before the triple shot on Walnut Street.
Purchase records also show Duff’s credit card and signature on a receipt for ammunition purchased from a gun store in Lebanon a week after the couple purchased the handgun. A security video also revealed that the couple from Walmart had bought a gun cleaning kit just 10 minutes before.
Witness accounts detailed that Grimball was in possession of the handgun, despite not having a license and not being legally allowed to own a firearm due to his criminal history. Grimball was noted by witnesses to have shown the weapon on several occasions.
Previous reports indicate that the triple murder was the result of an ongoing feud involving one of the victims and a friend of Grimball. Grimball’s friend is behind bars in Boone County on unrelated charges and told the suspect people in jail accused him of cooperating with police and being a snitch. He thought Stogsdill was behind the rumours.
Grimball and his friend spoke on the phone before and after the murders.
