Charges have been filed against two suspects arrested in the fatal stabbing of a man found at 4000 Redbud Street about 12:45 p.m. on March 24.
The first suspect, Derrick Jones (b/m, 49), is charged with murder and tampering with evidence- corpse in the 184th State District Court. The second suspect, Everett Smith (b/m, 45), is charged with tampering with evidence- corpse in the 184th State District Court. Booking photos of both suspects are attached to this news release.
Both are charged in the death of Marcus Jones, 31.
HPD Homicide Division Sergeants K. Daignault and M. Burrow reported:
Utility workers walking through an easement area at the above address found a male deceased and partially covered by a blanket. He appeared to have been there several days and had no identification on his possession.
An autopsy conducted by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences identified the victim as Marcus Jones and determined his death to have been caused by stab wounds.
Further investigation determined Mr. Jones was stabbed elsewhere and his body then left at the above location. Investigators determined Jones lived nearby and they were able to obtain evidence from inside his residence indicating the stabbing took place there. Investigators interviewed Jones’ uncle, Derrick Jones, and a friend, Everett Smith, who both admitted to their involvement in Jones’ death and the subsequent transport of his body. It was determined Derrick Jones stabbed Marcus Jones over property Marcus Jones had damaged. Smith then helped Derrick Jones conceal and later take the body to the above address where it was found.
