Wrongful Death Hardin Co. Man Pleads Guilty to Murder

A Hardin County man is facing 30 years in prison after he pleaded guilty in court on Friday to first degree murder.

The Morehead News is reporting that Jaque Maurel Abrams, 21, of Elizabethtown, admitted to his involvement in the death of Bo Otis, 20, of Owingsville on June 22, 2014.

KSP said that five mean planned to rob Otis’ residence nearly two years ago.


Otis was found lying in a pool of blood in his bedroom. Those charged and indicted were Demario Powell, 20, of Morehead, Marcus Stewart, 20, or Morehead, Anthony ‘Rell’ Paysen, 21, of Hodgenville and Julius ‘Jubee’ Kolowitz, 21, of Elizabethtown.

They say a roommate who was at the residence at the time escaped through a window before the altercation that led to Otis’ death.

Paysen was identified as the man who pulled the trigger.

Commonwealth’s Attorney Ronnie Goldy said Abrams was the first to go to court because his defense wished to offer a plea.

He is subject to a 30-year sentence for murder, 20 years for first degree robbery, 20 years for first degree burglary and five years for tampering with physical evidence.

The plea agreement will have all four charged run concurrently for 30 years, according to the Morehead News.

The other four men are facing the same charges.
