Jeremy Wise is now charged with second-degree murder. He is currently being held in the Lawrence County jail without bond.

Fields was a lineman for Lawrenceburg Utility Systems. He was also a well-known race car driver in the area and often coached, or supported his children’s sports teams.

“Anytime you ever had a sporting event at Lawrence County High school, Mark Fields was there, unless he was working,” said Gallaher.

The father of two, a son and daughter, was known for his big personality and comedy. Fields died just one day before his daughter Carley’s state volleyball championship. She is a senior at Lawrence County High.
