In 2000, Jerome and his brother Herbert Board Jr. were tried for Gilbert and Lansaw's murders. Prosecutors alleged that the brothers and Dale Peterson decided to shoot the men to death on their father's property rather than pay back the money. Jerome's ex-wife, Debra Broad, testified for the prosecution, stating that when Jerry brought them to the property in Paris, Herbert and Peterson were lying in wait to shoot them. Afterwards they dismembered the bodies and burned them.
By the time the Board brothers were charged, Peterson had taken his own life. Debra did not give her statement about the murder until the police contacted her in 1999, and she was granted immunity from prosecution for her role in the alleged murders. There was no physical evidence to support the story. The Board brothers were acquitted of all charges in December 2000.
Foul play is suspected in Lansaw and Gilbert's cases due to the circumstances involved. Their bodies have never been found.
