Woman Pleaded Not Guilty
Carrie Jones, 44 years old, pleaded not guilty to the death of one of four people in a small northeast Nebraska town last year. The court records revealed that she entered into a written not-guilty plea this week to the following:
- first-degree murder
- being an accessory to a felony and tampering with evidence
Meanwhile, her husband Carrie Jones, 44 years old, pleaded not guilty to each of the four counts of murder filed against him. That also included the use of a firearm to commit a felony and two counts of first-degree arson, according to a report published in FOX News.
It was first reported that Carrie Jones was charged in relation to the death of 86-year-old Gene Twiford last year. On the other hand, her husband was charged with allegedly killing Twiford, his wife, and his daughter. Additionally, he was also suspected of killing another woman in Laurel and setting fire to the victim’s home.
