Brantley and Jones, both 21, are each charged with felony murder in the Oct. 31 death of Clark Atlanta senior Alexis Janae Crawford.
Crawford, 21, of Athens, was reported missing Nov. 1, two days after her family last spoke with her. Her body was found Nov. 8 in a DeKalb County park, ending a weeklong search.
Crawford and Jones got into a physical fight, court documents state. Brantley also got involved in the fight, documents say. “As a result of the physical altercation, Barron Brantley choked the victim until she was deceased,” an Atlanta Police Department report says.
According to Jones’ arrest warrant, Jones also smothered Crawford with a black trash bag.”Afterwards Jones and Brantley placed Alexis Crawford in a plastic bin and transported her body to Exchange Park in Decatur, GA, where they placed her body in the woods,” the police report says.
