Germantown Man in Court, Charged with Murdering Wife
(Germantown,TN) Accused Killer Chris Jones walked into court without handcuffs, hours after police say he confessed to killing his wife Heather Palumbo-Jones and dumping her body in a wooded area off Highway 64.
Judge Robert Brannon appointed an attorney to represent Jones and gave him some advice, “Do not say anything. You don’t have to make a plea at all, and that’s what I encourage you to do.”
Jones is charged with 2nd degree murder.
Sources close to the investigation said dogs alerted police there had been a body in Jones’ car.
He later confessed to murder, then led officers to his estranged wife’s body in a field off Highway 64 in Arlington.
He’s being held in jail on a one million dollar bond.
