Donald Jones accused of voluntary manslaughter in friend’s killing during NBA Finals game
Donald Jones told police that he “threw a knife” at his friend Ronald Oliver during an argument while the two watched game one of the NBA Finals (the Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks) on Tuesday.
Police found Jones kneeling next to Oliver and holding a towel to Oliver’s chest. But Oliver, 40, was already dead. On Wednesday, Jackson County prosecutors charged Jones, 41, with voluntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
