Nathaniel “Yorkie” Smith, who will be 37 Tuesday, will be charged with the murders of Steve Mangus, Tom Walsh and Adeline Fisk of last August. The murder charges were part of a 16-count indictment returned by a grand jury. Smith was also charged with beating Gerald Short, 15, of Gas, who was found badly beaten the morning of Aug. 20. He told authorities that Mangus had been with him when he was beaten. The bodies of the murdered three were found during a 24-hour period on Aug. 20 and 21. Smith has a history of violent crimes.
