Jones is charged with aggravated murder, grand theft and evidence tampering in the slaying of Danville Officer Thomas Cottrell. The officer's body was found behind the village's municipal building on Jan. 17 after Jones' ex-girlfriend warned police Jones was armed and was "looking to kill a cop."

Jones also is charged with assaulting that woman and with aggravated burglary, kidnapping and grand theft from November, when the pistol was taken.
