Fifteen years after Mark Jones was brutally shot twice in the head and left to die in the snow near a Dumpster at a Lowell apartment complex, it took a Lowell Superior Court jury only two hours yesterday to convict his killer.

Happy to see Shawn is finally put away for life! Dispite it all, thank you Nolyn for helping them finally put Shawn away for justice for the Jones family. We know you were young and made a big mistake befriending Shawn and had fear yourself, but if it wasn't for you finally speaking up, we wouldn't have justice. Shawn would have done what he did regarless of talking you into being a part of it that night; it just would have been with another younger kid he could feed drugs to and take advantage of. Thank you to the jury and everyone else in the case that helped put that scumbag away.
Horrayyyy

It's time to file for an appeal and hire a good lawyer to appeal it,poor people always get first degree with no real evidents or a gilty plea from the defendent. if this was a rich person with a real lawyer he would have gotten out or a second degrre charge. Look at OJ Case!?
