Prosecutors say Jones stabbed Lee to death inside her apartment on Main St.

After she was reported missing by family members, her body was found on July 18.

In addition to this, prosecutors say Jones killed his own mother.

The body of Alethia Atwood Williams, 52, was found inside a closet after officials say Jones stabbed her to death in her apartment on Jefferson Ave.

Jones will be back in court on November 25 for a pre-trial hearing. He is in custody without bail.

If Jones is convicted, he could spend 50 years to life in prison.
