A Tecumseh man charged with two counts of shooting with intent to kill for an incident March 29 was adjudged guilty at conclusion of his non-jury trial in Pottawatomie County District Court.

The non-jury trial for Jerry Edward Daubert, 44, was heard before District Judge John Canavan.

Daubert, charged with two felony counts, was accused of using a Remington 700 .270 caliber rifle to shoot his ex-wife, Deadra LeAnn Daubert, 36, and her friend, Dathan Ray Lane, 50, while they were in a minivan outside his home in the Pecan Valley mobile home park, located along U.S. 177 in Tecumseh.

Police reported Deadra had gone to her ex-husband’s home to talk about their children, who were not present when events unfolded.

Police investigating the case said there was an altercation that allegedly prompted Daubert to go inside his home and retrieve a firearm; authorities believed he fired two rounds at the mini-van.

After the shooting occurred, police said Deadra drove the van to Unity Health Center, where she was treated for her injuries and released. Lane was transferred to OU Medical Center by helicopter ambulance, where he was hospitalized and treated for a gunshot wound to the chest.

Within an hour of the shooting, Daubert was in police custody and later charged in the case.

The non-jury trial first began with testimony on a date set aside in September, with the case resuming and concluding this week before Judge Canavan.

Daubert, who requested a pre-sentence investigation, is jailed without bond until formal sentencing on Dec. 14.
