    Suspected serial killer Jeremy Jones’ days of mugging for the cameras could be numbered.

    On Monday, Jones, 31, goes on trial in Mobile, Ala. for the murder of a woman.

    In September 2004, Lisa Nichols was found raped and killed in her home in Mobile. Authorities arrested Jones, and subsequently found out he had lived in a trailer park in Douglas County under an assumed name.

    In that same trailer park, 16-year-old Amanda Greenwell disappeared in March 2004. She was later found murdered in nearby woods, police said.

    According to Douglas County detectives, the Greenwell case went cold for six months until they linked it with Jones. Jones is also the main suspect in the disappearance of a Forsyth County woman in April 2004.

    “We do have a suspect in the disappearance of Patrice Endres. The suspect is a gentleman you’ve already heard his name a lot -- Jeremy Jones,” said Forsyth Sheriff Phil Miller.

    Several other law enforcement agencies around the country are still looking at Jones for unsolved murders because of statements he’s made while in custody.

    Jury selection got underway Monday morning in Alabama for the capital murder trial of suspected serial killer Jeremy Jones. Jones also faces charges of murdering three women in Georgia.

    The 32-year-old suspect is charged with raping and murdering 44-year-old Lisa Nichols of Turnerville, Ala., police said. In September 2004, Nichols’ body turned up in her partially burned mobile home.

    Once selected, the 12-person jury will be sequestered at a hotel when they are not hearing evidence. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Jones in a case that is expected to last at a couple of weeks.

    Day three in trial for accused serial Jeremy Jones resumed in an Alabama courthouse Friday morning.

    Authorities claim Jones raped and murdered Lisa Nichols in her mobile home. He then, according to police, tried to torch the home in order to hide any evidence of the crime.

    Prosecutors had called Nichols’ daughter to testify in the case, only to have defense attorneys make insinuations about her mother’s lifestyle.

    State prosecutor William Dill told jurors Thursday that Jones had inflicted "panic, terror and horror" on Nichols' family. But, defense attorney Greg Hughes said police had wrongly arrested a drug addict who would tell them anything they wanted to hear.

    Dill said Jones burned Nichols' body in her mobile home in an attempt to destroy evidence. He said Jones, who was staying with a neighbor of the victim, later refused to help the victim's daughters when they discovered the body.

    Jones has also been charged with murder in separate slayings in Georgia and New Orleans, and investigators in several other unsolved slayings have expressed an interest in Jones.

    Jones is charged with murder in the death of Amanda Greenwell, a 16-year-old neighbor in Douglasville, Ga., whose remains were found in April 2004, and Katherine Collins, a 45-year-old New Orleans woman whose body was found in February 2004.

    Authorities have said Jones confessed to or is being investigated in the deaths of a couple and the disappearance of two teenage girls in Oklahoma, as well as the killing of another woman in Georgia.

    A Georgia man is headed to the trial of suspected serial killer Jeremy Jones in Mobile, Ala. The reason -- his wife may be one of Jones' alleged victims.

    Patrice Endres disappeared from her Forsyth County hair salon last year.

    Her husband, Rob Endres, wants to look Jones in the face.

    “I’d like to see him in person,” Endres said.

    Jeremy Jones is on trial for the rape and murder of Lisa Nichols in Mobile.

    “I’m trying to get just a better understanding of what motivates a person like him to hurt women,” said Endres.

    The jury in the capital murder trial of accused serial killer Jeremy Bryan Jones heard a recorded telephone conversation Friday in which he admitted killing a Mobile County woman while high on drugs.

    The jury in the capital murder trial of accused serial killer Jeremy Bryan Jones heard a recorded telephone conversation Friday in which he admitted killing a Mobile County woman while high on drugs.

    "It was like a nightmare, I was in a movie," Jones said in the Dec. 10, 2004 recorded conversation from jail. After hearing it played to the jury, Jones wiped his eyes with a handkerchief as the courtroom fell silent.

    In the taped call, Jones told Mark Bentley, a former friend and a neighbor of the slain woman, Lisa Marie Nichols, that he needed prayer.

    "Pray for you?" asked Bentley. "Do you think it will do any good?"

    "Yeah, it can't hurt, can it?" Jones said.

    Testimony resumed Sunday in the trial of suspected serial killer Jeremy Jones in Mobile, Ala. The judge held the rare Sunday session because the jury is sequestered.

    Jones is on trial for the rape and murder of 44-year-old Lisa Nichols in Mobile, Ala. In September 2004, Nichols’ body turned up in her partially burned mobile home, authorities said.

    Finding Nichols’ body first set police on the trail of Jones, a drifter from Oklahoma. Since being arrested for her murder, Jones has been tied to a slew of other other rapes and murders in Georgia and other states, authorities said.

    For the second day in a row, jurors in the Jeremy Jones capital murder trial heard the defendant freely admit on tape that he shot Lisa Nichols in the head and set her body on fire, but he continued to deny he raped and killed her.

    Nichols, 45, was already dead of a methamphetamine overdose, Jones claimed during sessions with Mobile County Sheriff's Department investigators in September 2004.

    Often moaning or clearing his throat, his voice rising to a higher and louder pitch at times as he shot rapid-fire denials, Jones mostly stuck to his original story -- that he and Nichols had consensual sex in her Turnerville trailer home and that afterward, her heart racing, she died after ingesting too much speed.

    Serial killing suspect Jeremy Bryan Jones was convicted Wednesday of capital murder in the 2004 rape and shooting death of a Mobile County, Ala. woman attacked in her home during a hurricane blackout.

    A jury convicted the Oklahoma man of rape, burglary, sexual abuse and kidnapping during capital murder. The verdict opens the door for Jones to be prosecuted in separate slayings in Georgia and New Orleans, and possibly 10 other killings, according to investigators.

    Jurors deliberated about two hours in reaching the verdict. On Thursday, jurors will recommend either death or life in prison without parole. Circuit Judge Charles Graddick, who is not bound by the jury's recommended penalty, will sentence Jones later.

    Endres said he hopes Jones will say more about Patrice Endres once the Mobile trial ends. Endres said his wife's body probably will never be found, but he hopes to have some "justice for her and many others vicariously through this trial."

    Jones is charged with murder in the death of Amanda Greenwell, a 16-year-old in Douglasville, Ga., whose remains were found in April 2004, and Katherine Collins, a 45-year-old New Orleans woman whose body was found in February 2004.

    Greenwell's father, Rick Greenwell, also attended part of the Jones trial.

    Relatives of a woman who may be an early victim of convicted murderer Jeremy Jones say they'll need more than a confession to find closure.

    Jones was recently convicted of killing an Alabama woman.

    Wednesday, investigators plan to detail some of Jones’ statements about other crimes.

    On November 1, 2002, 38-year-old Tina Mayberry died after being stabbed outside a Douglas County bar.

    The case is still unsolved.

    Ala. Killer Admits to 12 More Slayings
    By GARRY MITCHELL
    Associated Press Writer

    MOBILE, Ala. — A man convicted of raping and murdering an Alabama woman has confessed to at least 12 more slayings in four other states, and may be linked to four more killings, authorities said Wednesday.

    Alabama Attorney General Troy King branded Jeremy Bryan Jones "a monster who would kill without remorse."

    Jones, 32, of Miami, Okla., faces a possible death sentence Dec. 1 for the killing of Lisa Marie Nichols, 44, in Alabama.

    During his trial last month, Jones maintained his innocence in the presence of his mother and girlfriend, but privately gave detectives details of the crimes, including victims' names and the locations of the killings, said sheriff's Detective Paul Burch.

    Jones was "very nonchalant and matter-of-fact" in recounting the rapes and killings, Burch said.

    Of the 13 victims Jones is suspected of killing, 10 were women.

    He is charged with killing a Georgia teen and a Louisiana woman. He is also a suspect in 10 other deaths — seven in Oklahoma, two in Georgia and one in Kansas. State and local law enforcement also believe he may be linked to the slayings of four Atlanta-area prostitutes.

    It's been more than 13 years since the brutal murder of Jennifer Judd. But now, her killer has allegedly confessed to not only her murder, but those of 13 others over a 12-year time span.

    Jeremy Jones was convicted and sentenced to death in Alabama last week for the rape and murder of Lisa Nichols last September. He is scheduled to be formally sentenced on December first.

    Tuesday, investigators in Alabama revealed information about killings Jones has confessed to and provided information about, including Judd's.

    It's believed Jones may have been a neighbor at the time of Judd's death.

    Alabama authorities told the media Tuesday that Judd was the first of Jones' victims.

    The grandparents of a girl missing for nearly six years say they do not believe the confession of Jeremy Jones, who allegedly admitted to killing the girl, her parents and a friend in 1999.

    Authorities released new information today on the alleged confessions of Jones, who was convicted and sentenced to die last week for raping and killing an Alabama woman in 2004. Mobile County Sheriff Jack Tillman told the media Wednesday that Jones had confessed to at least 14 murders, including those of Danny and Kathy Freeman, their daughter Ashley and Ashley's friend, Lauria Bible.

    Authorities in Alabama say a man convicted of murder in that state claims to have killed a dozen other victims elsewhere -- including southeast Kansas.

    The Kansas Bureau of Investigation says it's not ready to file charges against 32-year-old Jeremy Bryan Jones.

    Jennifer Judd of Baxter Springs was 20 when she was stabbed to death in her Baxter Springs duplex on May eleventh, 1992.

    Serial killing suspect Jeremy Bryan Jones to be sentenced

    MOBILE - Sentencing is scheduled this morning in an Alabama case for the man suspected of kidnapping and killing a Forsyth County woman last year.

    Serial killing suspect Jeremy Bryan Jones is to be sentenced for his capital murder conviction in the 2004 rape and shooting death of a Mobile woman while he was high on drugs.

    The jury had the option of recommending life in prison without parole over execution by lethal injection but voted in October in recommendation of the death penalty.

    Circuit Judge Charles Graddick is NOT bound by the jury's recommended penalty.

    The 32-year-old Jones of Miami, Oklahoma, was convicted of rape, burglary, sexual abuse and kidnapping during capital murder. The very clears the way for his possible prosecution in separate killings in Georgia and Louisiana.

    Investigators say he may be linked to 10 other killings.

    In statements to sheriff's investigators, Jones admitted killing 44-yar-old Lisa Marie Nichols on September 17th, 2004 while high on methamphetamines. In his trial testimony, however, he blamed the victim's neighbor for the murder, but prosecutors punched holes in that account. The neighbor died in August.

    When I was reading this earlier this morning I had a flash about another missing woman from Alabama, Melinda Wall McGhee. She disappeared in 2003 and has never been found. I was thinking this sounds like Jeremy Jones's work. So, I looked her up and sure enough, the police are considering him a possibility.

    This creep deserves nothing less then the death penalty. My gosh, he has been on a killing spree hasn't he. Seems like he murdered everyone that he lived by. Maybe it is a good thing not to get to know your neighbors!!

    Do you think he will be tried for the other murders or will this be it since he got the death penalty? I just hope he is man enough to tell LE about every person that he murdered and where their bodies are if they are still missing.

    I wonder why the parent/grandparents of the couple, teenager, and her friend don't believe that this guy murdered them?

    I'm glad that LE didn't make the same deal with this guy as LE here in Washington made with Gary Ridgeway....Green River Killer. Ridgeway didn't get the death penalty because he agreed to tell LE where the bodies were of the women that he murdered that hadn't been recovered. They wanted the families to be able to bury their loved ones. Some of the families agreed and some were very angry about the deal Ridgeway got. Of course he murdered about 49 women.

    Jeremy Jones often changed his appearance. But what kept him at large for so long was a more troubling problem: The FBI fingerprint database failed to detect his use of a false identity.

    Detectives have spent hundreds of hours listening to his rambling confessions. The more they hear, the harder it is to tell fact from fiction.

    Since his arrest last year, he has confessed to killing at least 21 people in a string of murders that spanned 12 years and five states. Eight may have been metro Atlanta women.

    Georgia authorities hope to bring him to justice here. He has been charged with the 2004 slaying of Amanda Greenwell, 16, in Douglas County. He told detectives he also killed Tina Mayberry outside a Douglasville bar in 2002 and that he kidnapped, raped and killed Patrice Endres, 38, a hairdresser who disappeared last year from her Forsyth County salon.

    He claimed he killed three prostitutes in Mobile, five in the Atlanta area and another in New Orleans. He has been charged in the New Orleans killing, but police haven't substantiated his other claims.

    Mobile County sheriff's Detective Paul Burch and Sgt. Mitch McRae have spent hundreds of hours with Jones, listening to his rambling and often changing confessions. His stories are a mixture of truth and fantasy.

    "We spent hours and hours talking about hunting and fishing and girls," said McRae, who has a collage of Jones' photos hanging behind his desk. "He brags about conquests, about having affairs with teachers. A lot of that stuff was not true."

    But several polygraph tests have supported his accounts of the killings.

    Nevertheless, Jones now claims his confessions are hogwash, that he played the system to get special meals and phone privileges and meetings with his mother and girlfriend. His mother says he has called more than 350 times.

    "When you take everything a man wants, I'll do everything possible to get what I want," he explained.

    The tale he told detectives goes back to 1992, when he said he stalked, tried to rape and then stabbed to death Jennifer Bryan Judd, a pretty 20-year-old newlywed, in her Baxter Springs, Kan., apartment.

    He also claimed to be the answer to an unsolved Oklahoma case in which a couple was found shot to death in 1999 in their burning trailer. Their 16-year-old daughter and her best friend are still missing.

    Jones told detectives he killed the couple, kidnapped the girls, raped one, shot them both and dumped their bodies down abandoned mine shafts. Burch believes the rape charges had taught him a lesson: "He learned you don't leave a witness."

    The life of a killer

    ATLANTA — The brown fields of Arkansas and Mississippi blurred past as a Greyhound sped Jeremy Bryan Jones away from his troubled past.

    It was December 2000, and the handsome 27-year-old mama's boy was wanted in Oklahoma on a rape charge. But he says he was fleeing more than just the law: "I was trying to change. I wanted a new life."

    He always felt the law had it in for him — even though two 1996 rape charges, including one where he allegedly fired a gun to threaten a woman, were reduced and he was given probation.

    Jones had to attend sex-offender classes, which he hated. "I don't want to listen to those perverts talk," he told his mother.

    A gregarious sweet-talker, Jones bragged he could "talk the panties off a nun." The silver-tongued ladies' man considered himself born lucky. But a voracious methamphetamine habit and increasingly aberrant behavior tested that luck — and he knew it.

    "It's easier to look in the rearview mirror than to face your problems," he later told detectives.

    In that mirror was Miami, Okla., population 14,000, a bleak landscape pocked with abandoned zinc and lead mines. Jones says he embraced the "**** mentality" in high school: "They had all the money, the motorcycles, the women. For a while, I had all that, too."

    As he fled Oklahoma, he had $3,000 from selling his truck and something priceless for a man in his situation: a new identity. He'd met the mother of a Missouri inmate in a bar in Joplin, Mo. He told her the system was sticking it to him again. She lent him her son's identity....
