Timothy Jones was convicted Feb. 21 of the murder of Jacqueline Reynolds after a Chicago Police car slammed into her during a high-speed chase Jones initiated following a residential burglary. Reader Dionne Stewart Smith posted this about the killing:
Jackie was a personal freind [sic] of mine..and I couldn’t be happier at the outcome. This young man had a choice to make when he woke up that morning. He could’ve been a productive law abiding citizen or break the law. His decision put into play my friend’s death and one of the worst phone calls I’ve ever had to receive at work.
