Baby Jada’s father charged with murder in Akron
AKRON, Ohio — A murder charge was filed Thursday against the 17-year-old father of Jada Ruiz-Jones, the baby who died last week soon after being taken off life support.
John Jones will remain in the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center until he is charged in adult court, said his attorney, Joseph Gorman.
“He’s still grieving the loss of his daughter,” Gorman said. “He maintains that he did not cause her injuries. He’s scared and confused, but looks forward to his day in court.”
