Jamaican Man In Georgia USA Severs Wife’s Neck In Dispute

30-year-old Jermaine Jones o/​c Jay and his wife 47 ‑year-old Opal Fern Christian Jones in hap­pi­er times.

The hus­band of a woman found “bru­tal­ly stabbed mul­ti­ple times” Wednesday night in Clayton County was arrest­ed in con­nec­tion with her death, the sheriff’s office said.

Jermaine Jones, 30, called 911 and “alleged­ly said some­thing to the effect that he had just com­mit­ted a heinous crime,” accord­ing to the agency.

Sheriff’s deputies and police offi­cers found Jones’ wife, who has not been iden­ti­fied, at a Springview Drive home in Forest Park with “her neck cut so severe­ly that her head was near­ly sev­ered,” the sheriff’s office said Thursday in a state­ment.

A wit­ness iden­ti­fied Jones as the sus­pect, offi­cials said. He tried to stop Jones but end­ed up “flee­ing for his life,” accord­ing to the state­ment.

Jones had alleged­ly fled as well to a loca­tion on Holiday Boulevard, where he made the 911 call. Authorities took him into cus­tody at that loca­tion with­out inci­dent. The sheriff’s office said his clothes were bloody.

According to Clayton County court records, Jones was booked on a charge of mal­ice mur­der. He is expect­ed to go before a judge on Friday for his first appear­ance.
