Trial starts for mid-Missouri student accused of threatening assistant principal

A trial is underway for a Columbia high school student accused of plotting to kill an assistant principal.

Jacob Vincent is charged in Boone County with peace disturbance after he was arrested in January.

The bench trial started Wednesday morning at the Boone County Courthouse.

Investigators say Vincent was caught after he shared his plans in a text message conversation with another student.

The students reportedly discussed the killing of an assistant principal at Rock Bridge High School in Columbia.

Columbia Public School District officials were notified about Vincent’s alleged plan after the messages were discovered by one of the student’s parents.
