The stabbing occurred at 10.30 pm, a little after the Cowboys won the game 26-20 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Jones grabbed the knife he had stashed and stabbed Magdalena Ruiz several times before his father managed to intervene. The killer ran out of the apartment and was found about 10 minutes later, lying naked in the grass near an intersection where police eventually took him into custody.
Oddly enough the killer showed no remorse: “When informed the victim was deceased, Jones appeared relieved and advised he stabbed the victim multiple times under the belief that a single stab wound would fail to render death,” the affidavit states.
Jones, who told investigators he stopped taking his prescribed medications because they would “slow him down,” said he had previously planned to join the military, but the pressure was simply too high and that he had disappointed his siblings.
One of Ruiz’s longtime friends said she felt uncomfortable about Jones’ erratic behavior and the family’s new living situation.
“She said, ‘I guess I’ll let him come into my life and our apartment,’” Amanda Rivera told the local FOX station. “He was kind of scary because he was like one of those people like if you want to say something, he would attack you … I’m a little angry and pissed off about it because, why did he have to do that to her? Why did she have to leave with God? It wasn’t her time to leave. It wasn’t.”
Jones has been charged with murder and remains jailed on $500,000 bond.
