Jones was convicted of second degree murder in the 1994 shooting death of his childhood friend, Antoine Stone. Records show that Stone was shot while preaching to a drug dealer at an intersection in Far Rockaway. The perpetrator fled on a bicycle.

Jones, who said he was in his Manhattan apartment at the time of the shooting, was convicted by a jury based on the testimony of eyewitnesses.

However, the witnesses recently submitted affidavits disavowing their identification of the defendant and alleging they were pressured by a detective and assistant district attorney to implicate Jones.
