Clayton County Police Homicide Detectives Arrest Man For Brutally Murdering His Wife. Sheriff Victor Hill

Last night, Clayton County Police and Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a domestic incident on Springview Drive in Forest Park.  Upon arrival they found a female brutally stabbed multiple times, and her neck cut so severely that her head was nearly severed.


A witness to the murder identified the victim’s killer as Jermaine Jones who is the husband of the victim.  The witness tried to stop Jones and 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 who clothes was bloody into custody without incident.


Sheriff Victor Hill will ask the Judiciary System to consider the death penalty in this case.
