James Hudson Main, Jr. was sentenced in 8th District Court this week in the shooting death of his father. Main Jr. originally faced a long list of charges in Utah and Colorado after a two day crime spree in October 2016 that included kidnapping, assault, and the aggravated murder of his own father. According to court documents, Main’s father called police on October 28, 2016 reporting that his son James Main, Jr. had stolen his gun and was “acting crazy.” Later that day, Main, Jr. abducted two individuals at gunpoint from a home north of Roosevelt. He forced them into a vehicle and had them take him to a Roosevelt residence where a struggle ensued and Main fired a shot and then took the vehicle and ran. The kidnapped man told police that Main Jr. had been bragging about shooting his father. As the investigation got underway, a well visit was performed and the body of Main’s 56-year-old father was discovered at his home in west Duchesne County, having been shot. Main was considered at large and dangerous during the following two day manhunt that included two high speed chases before Main was caught and held in Grand Junction. He was extradited to Utah shortly after to face the 1st Degree Felony Murder charge of which the jury trial was held earlier this month. The jury trial started on January 9th and on January 11th the jury found Main, Jr. Guilty of 1st Degree Felony Murder. On Monday, January 28th, Main, Jr. was sentenced to serve 15 years to Life in Prison. Main, Jr. will serve his sentence at the Utah State Prison.
