Man Wanted For Hindering Prosecution Jailed

Jason E. Talley

A man wanted for hindering prosecution in a Jamestown homicide case has been taken into custody.

The Jamestown Police Department on Thursday announced the arrest of 41-year-old Jason E. Talley, who was located in Buffalo by members of a U.S. Marshals task force. Talley, who was also being held on a state parole violation, was arraigned in Jamestown City Court and committed to Chautauqua County Jail.

Talley had been wanted in connection to the July 6 stabbing death of Brandon Holland as he walked along North Main Street. The department could not provide additional information regarding the first-degree hindering charge.

Jamestown resident Carl W. Sorenson was recently indicted on a second-degree murder charge for his role in Holland’s death. The 28-year-old was taken into custody the day after the stabbing incident.

Police believe the July 6 homicide was targeted and not a random act of violence; a prior incident may have precipitated the stabbing.
