    Oct. 16 execution set for man convicted in bookkeeper's death

    Governor Beebe has set an October 16th execution date for Jack Harold Jones Junior who was convicted for raping and murdering a bookkeeper and beating her 11-year-old daughter.

    Jones, who is 43, was convicted in 1996 of capital murder, rape and criminal attempt to commit murder in the killing of Mary Phillips and the beating of her daughter, Lacy.

    Jones' execution date is the 2nd set by Beebe since he took office in January. Last month, Beebe set a September 18th execution date for Terrick Nooner in the robbery and murder of 22-year-old Scot Stobaugh.

    On June 6th, 1995, 34-year-old Mary Phillips and her daughter, Lacy, were at a Bald Knob accounting office when Jones entered the office and robbed them. Lacy lost consciousness and was left for dead. When she awoke, police were taking photographs of her.

    Mary Phillips was found nude from the waist down with a cord from a nearby coffee pot wrapped around her neck. She also had been hit about the head and had bruises on her arms and back.

    Mental illness to be explored at hearing ---- Prosecutor to ask death sentence be carried out

    A death row inmate from White County will have a hearing Friday on his application for executive clemency.

    Jack Jones Jr., was convicted in 1996, of the brutal murder and rape of Mary Phillips, 34, and trying to kill her 11-year-old daughter, Lacy Phillips. Now 42, Jones was sentenced to death by lethal injection, and in 2005 pleaded guilty to the 1991 murder of Lorraine Anne Barrett, 32, in Florida.

    Gov. Mike Beebe has set an Oct. 16 execution date for Jones.

    The hearing will take place in the Varner Supermax Unit and will begin at 9 a.m. Jones will appear before a panel of the Arkansas Post Prison Transfer Board.

    A protesters hearing will be held at 1:30 p.m. the same day at the office of the Arkansas Parole Board, Two Union National Plaza, 5th floor, 105 West Capitol Avenue in Little Rock.

    "The Post Prison Transfer Board will make a non-binding recommendation to the governor," Prosecuting Attorney Chris Raff said.

    Raff has said he plans to appear at the hearings and ask that the death sentence be carried out.

    In Jones' application for executive clemency, he claimed significant mitigating circumstances concerning his background and mental illness were not presented at his trial.

    David Freedman, a mitigation investigator for the Capital Resource Counsel, filed an affidavit in 2005 that described his findings in the case. Defense presentation at Jones' trial was minimal, Freedman claimed, including the failure of the defense attorneys to fully investigate Jones' social history.

    The jury took only 30 minutes to return a guilty verdict and the defense case included only a single witness, a professor of pharmacology who only testified about the effect on the brain of methamphetamine abuse and gave no information about Jones' udrug use just before the murder, Freedman claimed.

    The defense should have shown strong evidence of a major mental illness with genetic components, according to the affidavit.

    A defense witness at Jones' trial was a physician whose license had been surrendered due to alcohol and drug abuse and who left Jones' medical chart in his car the morning he testified, Freedman said.

    Freedman's investigation revealed that Jones had attempted suicide on two occasions and that Jones has an anti-social personality and bi-polar disorder, the affidavit claimed. Six months before the murder Jones spent 6 days in a mental hospital, Freedman wrote, and had been involuntarily admitted to a psychiatric facility in 1991.

    On his 1st birthday, Freedman claims, Jones suffered a high fever and convulsions, and was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. Given Ritalin at about the age of 5, Jones began to hallucinate, probably caused by the Ritalin, Freedman said.

    Jones began to use illicit drugs at an early age, including marijuana, the investigator wrote.

    Jones' mother had "a serious gambling problem," Freedman said, and his father "is described as an alcoholic."

    The 17th Judicial District, for which Raff is prosecuting attorney, consists of White County and Prairie County but at one time included Lonoke County. Raff has prosecuted 3 death penalty cases: Barry Lee Fairchild in Lonoke County, Edward Charles Pickens in Prairie County and Johnny Michael Cox in White County, all of whom have been executed. The 1990 conviction of Cox, who killed 3 people in Kensett, was the 1st death penalty case in White County in 55 years.

    State Board Decides To Carry Out Execution

    A plea for forgiveness by an Arkansas death-row inmate who admitted raping and strangling a Bald Knob bookkeeper and severely beating her young daughter is not enough to halt his looming execution.

    The state Parole Board voted Monday morning to recommended no clemency be given to 43-year-old Jack Harold Jones, Jr.

    Jones was convicted of capital murder and rape in Mary Phillips' death, as well as the beating of her 11-year-old daughter Lacy. He faces an October 16th execution.

    Jones appeared before the parole board Friday. He told members that he did "own" responsibility for the June 6th, 1995, crimes. A pale, wheelchair-bound Jones, who suffers from severe back pain, told the board he had done paintings, writings and "made a tremendous amount of friends" while in prison. However, he acknowledged his apologies mean "nothing, that it doesn't replace the person."

    Governor Beebe will weigh the board's unanimous recommendation against parole, though he is not bound by it.

    Jones is seeking a federal court stay. He is challenging Arkansas' procedure of lethal injection as unconstitutional.

    Parole board members offered no comments with their votes.

    Execution Delayed For Death-Row Inmate

    Federal judges granted a stay Thursday to an Arkansas death-row inmate scheduled to die next week by lethal injection, a method the U.S. Supreme Court will examine in a coming case.

    A split panel of 3 judges from the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis granted the stay to death-row inmate Jack Harold Jones Junior. Jones appealed the court last month, arguing his scheduled October 16 execution should be delayed as the Supreme Court hears the case of 2 Kentucky inmates over lethal injection.

    A filing by state assistant attorney general Joseph Cordi Junior argued Jones should be put to death, saying the inmate "did nothing" legally for the years to stop his coming execution.

    The 43-year-old recently acknowledged to the state Parole Board that he did "own" the 1995 rape and slaying of Bald Knob bookkeeper Mary Phillips and an attack on her 11-year-old daughter.

    Governor To Appeal Execution Stay

    Gov. Beebe halted preparations Friday for a scheduled execution next week of a death-row inmate, saying a federal court stay would stop any action in "the immediate future."

    However, a spokesman for Beebe said the state attorney general would appeal the stay issued for Jack Harold Jones Jr. by the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis.

    A spokesman for the attorney general's office said the high court would not grant a quick hearing before Jones' scheduled execution Tuesday because of Beebe's action.

    Court lifts execution stay for Arkansas convict

    In Little Rock, a federal appeals court has lifted a stay blocking the execution of an Arkansas death-row inmate, but another prisoner's challenge before the state Supreme Court could delay the sentence from being carried out. The decision by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals eliminates a legal barrier protecting Jack Harold Jones Junior from lethal injection.

    But the ruling comes as the Arkansas Supreme Court plans to hear a challenge by lawyers representing death-row inmate Frank Williams Junior. They say the state cannot carry out its new lethal-injection protocol without public review first.

    A lawyer for Jones says Williams' lawsuit likely is the only thing stopping Jones from being executed. The Arkansas Attorney General's Office has not yet decided whether to ask Governor Beebe to set an execution date for Jones or to wait for a ruling in the Williams case.

    Jones was convicted of capital murder in the 1995 rape and slaying of Bald Knob bookkeeper Mary Phillips and an attack on her 11-year-old daughter. In 2005, he also pleaded guilty to the 1991 rape and slaying of a Pennsylvania woman. He was given a life sentence for that crime.

    It’s the first execution date set by the governor since a state Supreme Court ruling last fall that upheld the state’s lethal injection procedures.

    Clemency hearing set for Arkansas death-row inmate

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- The state Board of Parole has set a clemency hearing for a man scheduled to be executed in March for the killing of a Bald Knob woman.

    The hearing for Jack Harold Jones Jr. is set for Feb. 9. It will start with a parole board hearing in the morning and a victims' input hearing in the afternoon.

    Jones received a death sentence for the rape and slaying of Bald Knob bookkeeper Mary Phillips and an attack on her 11-year-old daughter.

    The parole board in 2007 rejected Jones' request for clemency, but he won a stay blocking his execution as he challenged the state's lethal injection protocols. A federal appeals court lifted that stay in 2008.

    Death row inmate, Jack Jones is rejected clemency by parole board

    The daughter of a Bald Knob woman who was brutally attacked and strangled says her mother's killer deserves no second chances.

    Lacey Phillips, who is now 25, told members of the Arkansas Board of Parole that Jack Jones deserves to die for the 1995 killing of her mother, 35-year-old Mary Phillips. Lacey was 11 at the time and was beaten and left for dead by Jones, but survived the attack.

    Jones faces a March 16 execution and is seeking clemency from the board. At a hearing last week at the maximum-security Varner prison, Jones apologized for what he did and said he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the murder.

    The parole board plans to release its recommendation Thursday. Gov. Mike Beebe has the final say on whether to approve the request.
