Man In Court, Charged With Killing Father

A man charged with murder appeared in court for a conference on Thursday, October 23rd.

Jake Edwards Jones has been charged with the murder of his father, Billy Jones. Jones appeared in the 89th District Court for a pre-trial conference where he was placed onto the trial docket. The trial date has yet to be announced.

In July 2013, Police were sent out on an assault with weapon call in the 700 block of Marconi St. Authorities found Jones injured and he was sent to United Regional for a gunshot wound. The 62-year-old was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

Jake Edward Jones ran from the scene by hailing a taxi, but was caught a short time after, only a few blocks away.
