UPDATE: Roommate Accused Of Killing CAU Student Alexis Crawford, Denied Bond

As we previously reported two people were arrested for the murder of Clark Atlanta University student Alexis Crawford. One of the suspects, Jordyn Jones, appeared in court today for a bond hearing.

While there, a judge denied bail for Jones, claiming she’s not a good candidate for a bond. The decision was based on the possibility that Jones “may, in fact, have engaged in the ultimate intimidation of witnesses.” Due to that, they believe she is a flight risk. Prosecutor Adam Abbate explained that evidence will show that Jones intimidated a witness in the biggest way possible when she helped kill Crawford to cover up evidence that her boyfriend, Barron Brantley had raped Crawford.

“Ms. Jones called family members of Ms. Crawford and told them that there was no DNA found in the rape kit,” Abbate said. “That is incredibly incorrect. The results of the rape kit indicate that Mr. Brantley’s semen was found inside of Ms. Crawford,” CBS46 quotes.

Crawford, 21, was discovered lifeless on Nov. 8, just a week after she was reported missing. It was later revealed that she died by asphyxiation. Both Barron Brantley, 21, and Jordyn Jones, 21, were charged with malice murder and booked at the Fulton County jail.

Brantley originally was scheduled for a bond hearing on Thursday, but his court-appointed attorney asked that it be moved to Friday when both defendants are set for a preliminary hearing.
