Stuarts Draft man faces murder charge in death of Waynesboro woman
Shawn Preston Jones, 42, was taken into custody today at UVA Hospital in Charlottesville, where he had been admitted after being involved in a single-vehicle crash on South Delphine Avenue early Saturday morning, April 6th.
As a result of the continuing investigation into the discovery of the body of Deborah Jean Allen on Saturday morning in a Royal Inn Motel room, her death has been ruled a homicide due to blunt force trauma.
Jones has been charged with second-degree murder in the case.
He is currently being held without bail at Middle River Regional Jail pending a hearing in Waynesboro Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on Thursday.
