6/21/2017 - Grand Jurors Return 2nd Indictment Against Genene Jones for 1981 Death of Rosemary Vega

San Antonio, Texas, June 21, 2017: This morning, a Bexar County Grand Jury returned a true bill of indictment against Genene Jones for the September 16, 1981 murder of 2-year-old Rosemary Vega. Last month, our office announced the indictment against Jones for the December 12, 1981 murder of 11-month-old Joshua Sawyer.

The Grand Jury recommended Jones’ bond be set at $1 million for this latest indictment. Due to a law in effect at the time Jones was sentenced, she will be released from prison in March 2018. Prior to her mandatory release, she will be extradited back to Bexar County where she will await trial for the new charges. Jones is currently incarcerated in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Lane Murray Unit in Gatesville, Texas.

Murder is a first degree felony, punishable by 5 to 99 years or life in prison and up to a $10,000.00 fine. Due to the continuing investigations, we will reserve further comment at this time regarding potential future charges against Jones.
