Kansas Cold Case Arrest In Georgia
Associated Press - April 1, 2015 10:34 am
Authorities say a couple charged with a 1992 death in Kansas have waived extradition from Georgia and are expected back in the state in the next few weeks.
Kelly J. Jones and Roger Jones Sr. were arrested last week in Forsyth, Georgia, after evading capture for decades. They are charged with first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Patrick Howe, who was found beaten and strangled at a motel in Dodge City.
Arrest warrants were issued for the couple in 1996 but the two fled before deputies could take them into custody.
Ford County investigator George Brown says officers never gave up on the case. Brown found the couple living under aliases at a campground in Georgia after authorities received a tip.
