Tennessee rep honors Belmont student shot, killed with ‘Jillian’s Law’

A state representative has introduced an amendment in honor of Jillian Ludwig, a Freshman student at Belmont University who was killed after being shot in a Nashville park.

House Bill 1640 was filed for introduction on Jan. 5 by Rep. William Lamberth (R-Portland). The proposed law would expand the definition of “adjudication as a mental defective” to include a person who has been found incompetent to stand trial.

Now, the new bill will be named “Jillian’s Law” in honor of Ludwig. The amendment was introduced by Rep. Ryan Williams (R-Cookeville) on Tuesday. Ludwig died in November 2023.
