Travon Jones: St. Louis Teen Charged With Sodomy, Murder

Travon Jones: Teen faces multiple charges for gruesome home invasion.
Police have a new accusation to add to laundry list of charges filed against 19-year-old Travon Jones: murder.

Last week Jones was charged with forcible sodomy, burglary, theft, assault, resisting arrest and tampering with a motor vehicle after he allegedly forced his way into the home of an elderly couple in north St. Louis. 

According to a probable cause statement, Jones approached a caretaker for the couple outside their house on November 6 and forced the woman inside the home. Once there, Jones demanded money from the 50-year-old caretaker and hit her in the face. He then struck 92-year-old Arteria King in the head and face, breaking the victim's bones and his nose and knocking him to the ground. 

After rifling through the house in search of jewelry, prosecutors say Jones cornered the caretaker and forced her to perform oral sex on him. He then stole her car keys and her Honda Accord and made his escape. St. Louis police pulled him over in the vehicle the next day, and he briefly tried to run before officers could make the arrest. 

On Sunday the elderly man attacked in his home died as a result of the injuries sustained in the attack, leading prosecutors to add the murder charge. Jones, of the 1100 block of Goodfellow, is being held on $200,000 bond.

You know, I think in cases like this when these people either 1) admitt to doing the crime or 2) are found guilty, they should just take them outside the courthouse right then, stand them against a wall and command  6 or 8 officers to shoot simoultainiously. That way they are no threat to anyone else and they are not sitting in jail sucking up tax dollars.Getting free room and board and free healthcare. It is a shame that people are crazy enough to do this kind of stuff but I guess that is the world we live in. But I do believe that if things were handled a little diffrently and not with kid gloves, the world would be a better place.

To be clear.  King was KILLED.  The young man who did this - his name is Trevor JONES.  I am a family friend of the Kings and they were a beautiful couple.  This article does not mention that although the wife was not assaulted.  She died the Sunday morning following the attack and her husband died that afternoon.  Everyting about this cas e is sad and rather than wish the wrath of some corrupt, sex offenders in jail, let's consider figuring out a way to stop this senseless, meaningless violence.

What a sorry excuse for a person!  I wonder just who the hell he thinks he is doing what he did to anybody?  Murder and forcible oral sex?  Really???  What a f*ck*ing POS!!!  I don' t care if he's "managed" to stay out of trouble for his measley 19 years of life.  He still deserves punishment to the fullest extent of the law!  No one deserves what crimes he committed!  This poor old man and his care taker.  By the looks of Travon, I can see why he'd need to force anyone to give him oral sex, from a female anyway...I am quite sure the bubba's in the pen won't mind making him their bitch...lol, fresh meat.  I hope that give him what he deserves.  If he didn't want the bubbas to get him, he should kept his sorry ass outta trouble.  Oh well, serves him right!

Travon would fuck iHateTheSuburbs Shit up! IHTS would start in with "hey man it's cool, it's cool, some of my best friends are the bruthas" Then Travon and his posse would jump on IHTS and fuck him up and then sodomize him. But I doubt that would still be enough to convert IHTS.

Too bad the cops didn't shoot as he tried to flee.

It is more than amazing that a person like King has kept out of trouble - no criminal record - for most of his nineteen years and then suddenly commits all the horrible crimes mentioned  in this article. It doesn't make sense. You would expect this from a hardened criminal, not a 19 yr old with no record. On the other hand, King went from nothing to head of the class in one fell swoop, skipping those childhood crimes of tampering, assault, shop lifting, dealing drugs, etc. He grabbed the golden ring of big time crimes and went directly to murder, robbery and sodomy.

Watch out Travon, Bubba and the bruthas will be waiting for you. Ah, LWOP! Don't drop the soap! LMAO

Good ahead and pass judgement. When is enough too much? Grow a spine, the black race has been waging war on Whites since the 1800's why not finally fight back!

Stop the violence you mean by hugging the perps more or perhaps throwing billions more White dollars at the ghetto to right some mythical wrong?

They never needed this guy to look bad before, they've each individually achieved it on their own (you know black power).

"Kept out of trouble" and "no criminal record" are two different things.
