Laurel homicide suspect bond set at $5 million
LAUREL, Neb. -- Bond has been set for the suspect in a quadruple homicide in a small northeast Nebraska town.
According to court documents, bond for Jason A. Jones has been set at 10 percent of $5 million.
He's facing charges including four counts of first-degree murder, two counts of arson and four counts of weapons violations.
Police allege that Jones killed 53-year-old Michele Ebeling Thursday morning in Laurel before causing a fire in her home.
According to police, Jones then went three blocks south, broke into another home and killed 86-year-old Gene Twiford, 85-year-old Janet Twiford and 55-year-old Dana Twiford.
Jones was so badly burned that he had to be flown to a hospital in Lincoln.
According to court documents for the bond, Judge Luebe said Jones is considered an extreme danger to public safety.
