By Gene Birk | 

The father of a seven-year-old Barren County boy killed in a truck accident in August 2006 is now in jail.

Warren Circuit Judge Steve Wilson revoked Jason Veach's probation the morning of April 23, 2007, and he was immediately taken into custody.

According to a court official, Veach was on probation from drug charges in Warren County when he violated it by having a case of beer in his refrigerator.


We first became aware of Jason Veach as the driver of a pickup who lost control of his vehicle, throwing his seven-year-old son, Michael, out of the truck's bed, killing him last August 26, 2006.

No charges have been filed in Michael's death.
