BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Police have confirmed to 2 On Your Side that the body found on Friday was the mother of murder suspect Charles Jones.
Jones was arrested following a standoff with police inside an apartment in the 1400 block of Jefferson Avenue Friday morning. He has also been charged with murdering his ex-girlfriend, Jacquetta Lee, 25, who was found dead in her apartment on July 18.
According to investigators, Jones stabbed Lee to death in her Main Street apartment. She had been reported as missing days before by family members.
After Jones was arrested, police say they found the body of another female in the Jefferson Avenue apartment. That body has since been identified as Jones' mother, Alethia Atwood Williams. An autopsy revealed that she was also stabbed to death. The family says she was found stuffed in a closet.
LaTia Boykin, sister of Jones, spoke with 2 On Your Side about her brother, "My brother was a very disturbed young boy growing up and mentally ill. Nobody knows he suffered a lot and I am disgusted by his actions."
Boykin described her mother as one who was always willing to help.
"She would bend over backwards for anyone who needed it. She helped homeless people she was a good person, she didn't deserve this at all," said Boykin.
Curtis Lee, father of Jacquetta Lee spoke with 2 On Your Side's Claudine Ewing about the death of his daughter.
"I'm upset and angry but at the same time I'm at peace knowing that they got this serial killer that called himself being smart enough to out smart the system," Lee said.
Lee says he urged his daughter to get an order of protection, but it never happened. He wishes the system would allow family or friends of a victim to get orders to save lives.
"The system is broken," said Lee "he has a history of violence and that's one of the things I would like to be an advocate for. My daughter had an opportunity to speak out on this and put an order of protection in place, what I was hoping to do was establish something where we can intervene. It's clear the system has failed her, it appears instead of the system working for her, it worked against her. It services Charles because he gets to do time and my daughter is now in the grave."
He says his daughter was hit in the face with a bed rail when she was pregnant.
Jones is currently being held without bail and could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
