After he turned himself in this week, the man who’s been charged with killing rapper Trouble will remain in jail for the time being.
On Tuesday, June 7, Jamichael Jones appeared before a judge in Atlanta just hours after he was arrested by police. The 33-year-old waited for his hearing virtually as he sat handcuffed in a room while wearing an orange jumpsuit. Jones is currently facing felony charges of murder, aggravated assault, and home invasion. He’s also facing a battery charge, which is a misdemeanor. Although there was a bond opportunity for the misdemeanor charge, Jones was denied bond on the felony charges.
“It appears that you’re not currently on probation or parole so you’re entitled to bond on the battery,” Judge Phinia Aten told Jones. “That bond will be set in the amount of $10,000. You’ll be held on no bond, and as I stated earlier, your council will need to file a motion for a review by Superior Court for bond on your felony murder and home invasion, and bond is denied on the aggravated assault on the basis of threat to victims and witnesses.”
Jones is accused of murdering Trouble, born Mariel Semonte Orr after he reportedly found the rapper sleeping in bed with his ex-girlfriend. Orr had woken up to Jones beating his ex and then got into a fight with Jones. The fight ensued until Jones pulled out a gun, shot Orr in the chest, and fled. Orr died on the scene after police arrived.
Family, friends, and fans of Trouble aka Skoob have been mourning the rapper’s death since the news broke on Sunday. There will be a candlelight vigil for the rapper on Thursday, June 9. See more information about the vigil below.
