An abducted girl has allegedly killed her kidnapper’s mother with a rock while US Marshals were trying to rescue her.
Kaitlyn Coones, 17, from Cleveland, Ohio, is accused of murdering Nicole Jones, 53, days after she was snatched by the victim’s pedophile son Jonathan Jones, 33.
The fugitives then fled across the US southern border, sparking an urgent manhunt by the US Marshals.
The pair were tracked into Mexico before finally being found in Ahumada, Chihuahua, nearly a month later in May.
Although still 17, Coones is being treated as an adult as has been charged with aggravated murder, murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse.
Coones is said to have been picked up at a restaurant by Jonathan Jones who drove her back to the home he shared with his mother, Nicole.
Coones crawled in through Jones’ bedroom window in order to hide from his mother who, 16 years her senior, disapproved of her son having anything to do with the 17-year-old.
Prosecutors allege Coones gave Jonathan an ultimatum to kill his mother because she felt she was interfering in their ‘relationship’.
