Urgent: Oklahoma’s governor moves Julius Jones’ death sentence to life in prison without possibility of parole hours before planned execution.
Some information about Julius Jones
Julius Darius Jones has been accused since 1999 of the murder of businessman Paul Scott, and rumors abound between his innocence and the reason that he was at home at the time of the crime, and that he killed the man based on the accusation of Paul Howell’s family.
Born on July 25, 1980, Jones attended John Marshall High School and was a professional at playing basketball. Jones received an academic scholarship. Jones committed several acts of theft because his family could not afford it and could not afford it. Jones got to know Christopher Jordan, who then became the other defendant in the 1999 murder.
The businessman, Paul Howell, was in the corridor of his house when he was killed, and the killing was a shot in the head, and witnesses to the accident, including Howell’s son, said that the killer was wearing a black uniform and covering his head with a red badge.
Rachel Howell, Howell’s daughter, said she saw Jones and Jordan in the car and then claimed she saw Jones approach her father and then shoot him
Julius Jones was eventually arrested and charged with the murder of Howl, and the red badge was found and attached to the crime tool, and Jones denied that he stole the car and killed Howl.
Jones said that he was at home at the time of the crime and confirms that Jordan is the one who wants to put the charge on him and plant the evidence that implicated him in the crime.
The court sentenced Julius Jones to death in 2002, Jones’ defense did not present any evidence of the demolition and quality of the crime scene at the time of the event, as well as members of his family did not appear to testify before the court, which worsened Jones’ situation, and he was imprisoned until 2021 until the sentence is executed Execution November 18, 2021…
David Prater’s attorney wrote a letter to the Parole Board objecting to the reduced sentence based on the following evidence:
First: Jones’ “comprehensive criminal history”.
Second, he ignores the fact that there were three people who came to court and said that Christopher Jordan had confessed to the murder.”
That was in March of 2021
In the Capitol
Supporters of death row inmate Julius Jones gather, waiting for the governor to pardon him and halt the death sentence.
Jones is scheduled to be executed on Thursday, “but Governor Kevin Stitt is considering a recommendation from the Pardon and Parole Board that his sentence be reduced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.”
A handwritten letter arrived Monday from Jones’s mother, after the family’s attempts to meet with Governor State, saying she was optimistic.
Events unfolded until Reverend
of Sojourner’s United Church of Christ of Charlottesville, Virginia traveled to make a personal presentation to the governor in the case. He requests that he trade Julius Jones’ life for his own if Jones faces execution.
We are waiting for where the ruler’s decision will take us… Is it a pardon or a ruling to end life?
