Triple Homicide Suspect Appears Before Judge

The man charged with killing his mother, father, and younger brother last week made his initial appearance in court on Tuesday.

Ryan Jones is accused of shooting to death his family members…Roosevelt Jones, his father; Edna Jones, his mother; and Russell Jones, his brother…inside their Hephzibah home.

A magistrate judge told Jones the case needed to move to Superior Court. Right now, Jones does not have a public defender assigned to his case. When a lawyer is assigned, they can request a bond hearing.

Funeral arrangements for the Jones family will take place this Saturday, June 1st at Good Shepherd Baptist Church, in downtown Augusta. Services start at 11:00 a.m. The Jones' were members of the church for nearly 40 years.
