PRENTISS COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)-A full day of testimony is underway for the second trial of Rebecca “Becky” Jones.
Yesterday, Tammy Johnson, a Prentiss County sheriff’s deputy, was the first on scene after Jane Jone’s called 911 and was the only witness the jury heard.
In the first trial, the few witnesses to testify said the two women had a long history of bad blood.
Additional local law enforcement and forensic experts are expected to testify today.
39 year-old Rebecca Jones of Prentiss County is charged with the May 20-10 murder of her 66 year-old mother Jane Jones.
Jones’ first trial last October ended in a mistrial when Jones mysteriously ended up comatose in an Alabama hospital as the proceeding’s third day began.
