News Americas, ATLANTA, GA, Mon. Oct. 1, 2018: Clayton County, Georgia Sheriff, Victor Hill, says he will ask the judiciary system to consider the death penalty against Jamaican immigrant Jermaine Jones, who murdered and almost decapitated his wife last Thursday night, Sept. 27th.
Jones, 30, is accused of brutally stabbing his 47-year-old wife, Opal Fern Christian-Jones, multiple times cutting her neck so severely that her head was nearly severed.
Clayton County Police and Sheriff’s Deputies say the domestic incident occurred at Springview Drive in Forest Park, Clayton, Georgia.
A person who tried to stop Jones ended up fleeing for his life. Jones later called 911 from Holiday Blvd and allegedly said something to the effect that he had just committed a heinous crime.
Police Officers and Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Holiday Blvd and took Jones, whose clothes were bloody, into custody without incident.
Jones was denied bond when he appeared in court on Friday and is being held at the Clayton County Jail on one charge of malice murder.
He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on October 11th.
Jones reportedly attended May Day High in Manchester, Jamaica and Fern Christian-Jones is a past student of Steths in St. Elizabeth Jamaica.
