(BLOOMFIELD) - Doug Lambermont, who is accused of murdering Derek Fulford, has hired Jessie A. Cook to represent him.

On September 4, Lambermont was charged with murder and Greene County Prosecutor Jarrod Holtsclaw filed a notice with the court that if Lambermont is convicted, Holtsclaw intends to seek an additional penalty for the use of a firearm.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Lambermont shot Fulford four times with a Smith & Wesson .380 semi-automatic pistol. The shooting occurred late Monday afternoon, Sept. 1, in the front yard of a residence on North Ridge Road near the southwest edge of Jasonville where Derek Fulford lived with his father and step-mother.

At approximately 5:20 p.m., the Greene County Sheriff's Department received a call from a family member reporting Derek Fulford had been shot by Lambermont.

Police, fire and ambulance personnel were dispatched and Fulford was transported to Greene County General Hospital where he was pronounced dead not long after his arrival in the emergency room.

An autopsy was conducted on the deceased by Forensic Pathologist Dr. Roland Kohr at Regional Hospital in Terre Haute the next morning. Dr. Kohr says Fulford suffered four gunshot wounds, one to the head, two to the chest and one to the right arm.

Dallaire reported one of the chest wounds and the head wound could both be considered lethal.

According to the affidavit, Fulford and Lambermont were involved in a family feud and police had responded to another family incident earlier over the Labor Day weekend. Fulford was Lambermont's brother-in-law -- Lambermont was married to Fulford's sister.

Several other individuals, who were present on the property when the shooting took place, gave statements to investigators.

The trial date has not been set but a pretrial conference is scheduled for late October.

Greene Superior Court Judge Dena Martin ordered Lambermont be held without bond and he remains incarcerated in the Greene County Jail.

Jessie Cook of Terre Haute specializes in the defense of individuals accused of serious felonies and capital offenses in both state and federal courts.
