DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The man involved in a crime spree that ended up killing a man and injuring his wife has been indicted by a Houston County grand jury.

In a February press conference, Dothan police said Jeremy Jermain Jones allegedly began his “real-life case of Grand Theft Auto” on Feb. 25, 2019, when he got into a fight on North Alice Street, pulling out a gun and robbing the victim of their wallet and Santa Fe.

This reportedly led to a spree of robberies and even a kidnapping that came to a close with a high-speed chase on the Ross Clark Circle.

Police said Jones swerved oncoming traffic, colliding with a vehicle occupied by Paul and Patricia Roberts. Paul died while Patricia was treated for her injuries.

“What he did was just outright mean, vicious, selfish, ruthless, and those are just the words that I can think of off the top of my head,” police Chief Steve Parrish said at the time of the press conference.

These are some of the charges Jones was indicted on:

  • Murder
  • Assault
  • Kidnapping
  • First-degree Robbery (multiple counts)
  • Attempted Kidnapping
  • Leaving the scene of an accident

The week before the crime spree, Jones was involved with another high-speed chase, to which he pleaded guilty in May.
