Roommate, Boyfriend Indicted in Strangling Death of College Student

A man and a woman have been indicted on murder and other charges in the killing of Alexis Crawford, a Clark Atlanta University student, prosecutors said.

The indictment against Barron Brantley, 21, and Jordyn Jones, 22, was announced Friday.

Crawford was strangled, placed in a plastic bin and dumped at a park, police said. Crawford and Jones were roommates, and had a fight inside their apartment and Jones’ boyfriend, Brantley, got involved, court records show. Brantley strangled Crawford, and then the couple put her body into the bin and left her in a park outside Atlanta, police said.

“The case has come to one of the saddest conclusions possible, and has been absolutely heartbreaking,” Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields said at a November news conference after Crawford’s body was found.
