Prior to the shooting, one of D’Zondria’s relatives called police and requested a welfare check. Police arrived around an hour before the murders and spoke to directly to D’Zondria, who told officers she was "OK." Family members arrived at the home, and found D’Zondria and La’Porsha dead. Ja’Corbie was still alive and told police that “Keith” had shot them. Ja’Corbie later died from his wounds at a hospital.

 

D’Zondria was trying to leave her relationship with Jones due to his abusive behavior. In the past, friends witnessed Jones threatening D’Zondria’s life and family members said Jones would often show up at D’Zondria’s home unannounced. In December, Jones broke into D’Zondria's home through a window and assaulted her. The following morning, he fired his gun at D’Zondria. That same month, D’Zondria told a friend that she was pregnant. While in custody, TeKeith Jones

told police he killed La’Porsha and Ja’Corbie because their mother was “playing mind games and corrupting the kids.” He is charged with three counts of second-degree murder.
