Son Faces Murder Charges in Parents' Death

Prosecutors plan to head to Franklin County Friday to talk to a man accused of murdering his parents.

Police found the bodies of Doctor Tim Jones and his wife, Nancy, inside their Monroeville home Thursday. Police found the bodies while checking up on Dr. Jones after he failed to show up for work at an area hospital that morning. Police say they had responded to a report of a disturbance involving the couple's son, Timothy Jason Jones at the home earlier that morning. Now, police believe that Jason Jones may be responsible for his parents' death.

Police were able to trace Jones to Muscle Shoals, where he led them on a chase that reached speeds more than 100 miles an hour. Police finally managed to stop Jones and arrest him. He has been treated at a North Alabama hospital for unspecified injuries that were not life-threatening.

As for a motive in this case, District Attorney Tommy Chapman says Jason Jones has a history of run-ins with the law, and a drug habit. Jones could be charged with capital murder before the day is over.
