Funeral Arrangements Set For Triple Homicide Victims

Funeral arrangements are now complete for the victims of a triple homicide in Hephzibah.

A funeral service for Roosevelt, Edna, and Russell Jones will be this Saturday, June 1st at 11:00 a.m. at Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta.

The victims' burned bodies were discovered in a field near Deer Chase Elementary School a week ago Tuesday.

The gruesome crime devastated their friends and their family, yet through it all, the pastor of the victim's beloved church offers encouragement during this time of extreme loss. “There is strength, there's hope, and we've got to go forward in their behalf and their memory,” says Pastor Kerwyn Myles, of Augusta Deliverance Evangelistic Church.

Ryan Jones is charged with 3 counts of Murder and Possession of a Firearm. He is the son and brother of the victims.

Ryan Jones was due to make a court appearance Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. We will provide more information on that court appearance as it becomes available.
