Monsters Among Us: Jack Harold Jones raped and killed Mary Phillips in front of her 11-year-old daughter; Sentenced to death

From Jones’ appeal: On the afternoon of June 6, 1995, seventeen-year-old Darla Phillips dropped her eleven-year-old sister Lacy off at Automated Tax and Accounting Service in Bald Knob, where their mother, thirty-four-year old Mary Phillips, worked as a bookkeeper.   Mary was planning to take her daughter to a 3:00 p.m.   dentist appointment.   Darla and her fifteen-year-old brother Jessie were expecting their mother and little sister to return to their home in Bradford around 4:30 p.m.   or 5:00 p.m.   They never arrived.

A black-haired male entered the business before Lacy and her mother could leave for the dentist’s office.   According to Lacy’s testimony at trial, the man had a teardrop tattoo on his face and more tattoos on his arm.   The man had come into the business earlier that day to borrow some books.   When he returned, he complained that he had been given the wrong book.   He then told Lacy and her mother that he was “sorry,” but that he was “going to have to rob (them).”   He ordered Mary to lay down on her stomach, and then made Lacy lay down on top of her mother.   After retrieving the cash out of the register, he took them into a small break room.   The man took Lacy into a bathroom off of the break room, tied her to a chair, then left.   When he returned, Lacy, now crying, asked the man not to hurt her mother, to which he replied, “I’m not.   I’m going to hurt you.”   He began to choke Lacy until she passed out.   After Lacy lost consciousness, Jones struck her at least eight times in the head with the barrel of a BB gun, causing severe lacerations and multiple skull fractures.   When Lacy woke up, she saw blood and began to vomit.   She went back to sleep and awakened later when police, seeing her bloodied body and thinking she was dead, were taking photographs of her.

Police found Mary’s body nude from the waist down.   A cord from a nearby Mr. Coffee pot was wrapped around her neck and wire was tied around her hands, which were positioned behind her back.   Bruises on her arms and back indicated that she had struggled with her attacker prior to her death.   According to autopsy results, Mary died from strangulation and blunt-force head injuries.   Rectal swabs indicated that she had been anally raped before she was killed.

Monsters Among Us: Marcel Wayne Williams kidnapped, raped and killed Stacy Rae Errickson; Sentenced to death

From Williams’ appeal: On November 20, 1994, Stacy Errickson, the victim, on her way to work, stopped at the Jacksonville Shellstop for gas.   The time was approximately 6:45 a.m. Williams approached Errickson’s vehicle, drew a firearm, and forced her to move from the driver’s seat to the passenger’s side.   Williams then drove Errickson’s car away from the convenience store.   Williams then took Errickson to several automated teller machines and coerced her to attempt withdrawals.   A total of eighteen transactions yielded the sum of $350.   The last transaction occurred at 7:37 a.m. These transactions were recorded by security cameras at several banking facilities.   Stacy Errickson did not make it to work that day, nor did she pick up her child from the babysitter at the end of the day.

Police arrested Williams on an outstanding warrant on November 29, 1994, and questioned him based on physical evidence linking him to two other assaults on women.   During the course of an intensive interrogation lasting some thirteen hours, Williams admitted having abducted Errickson from the convenience store and robbing her through ATM withdrawals.   However, he denied any sexual assault and assured the officers that to the best of his knowledge Errickson was alive.   Appellant attempted to implicate others as accomplices asserting that they were the ones responsible for physically harming her.   Based upon information Williams supplied, the police recovered a sheet matching Williams description as one he used in connection with the abduction and also recovered a gold ring which Williams identified.   On December 5, 1994, police discovered Stacy Errickson’s body buried in a shallow grave.   Other evidence adduced at trial indicated that witnesses Tammy Victoria and Tammy Keenahan identified Williams as a man they had seen on the morning of November 20, 1994, at the Shellstop.   They also testified that after they left the station he followed them in a car and attempted to stop them until they sought refuge at the air force base.   Williams subsequently returned to the Shellstop and abducted Stacy Errickson.

On April 5, 1995, the Pulaski County prosecutor by felony information charged Williams with capital murder, kidnapping, rape, and aggravated robbery.   The information also asserted that Williams had four prior felony convictions.   The Pulaski County Circuit Court tried Williams on these charges beginning on January 6, 1997.   Appellant was convicted on all counts.   During the sentencing phase of the trial the prosecutor introduced evidence in support of three aggravating circumstances, and the appellant offered one mitigating circumstance.   The jury found that all three alleged aggravating circumstances existed beyond a reasonable doubt and that Williams’s mitigating circumstance was also established.   In balancing these findings the jury recommended a sentence of death, which the trial court accepted.

Mary Helen Kendrick Williams murder 6/22/1968 Shelby, NC *Robert Roseboro convicted, sentenced to death; Death sentence overturned, sentenced to life in prison*

From Roseboro’s appeal: In substance, the evidence disclosed that on June 22, 1968, the deceased, Mary Helen Kendrick Williams, a white woman, operated “Mary’s Custom Towel Outlet” in Shelby, Cleveland County. The one story shop had three doors, one on the north and one on the south of the building, and a double door for loading on the east. The north and south doors apparently had glass panels. The double door on the east was secured from the inside by a 2×4 resting in hooks attached to the door facings. The main room of the shop contained display tables. There was a bathroom located off the display room.

Mrs. Lola Williams, mother-in-law of Mary Helen Kendrick Williams, called the towel shop over the telephone at 10:45 on the morning of June 22, 1968. Mary Helen answered. She seemed busy and the mother-in-law did not engage her in any further conversation.

At approximately 11:15 a.m., Mrs. Alberghini, a prospective customer, found the entrance door locked. Through the glass she saw a person, whom she identified as the defendant, inside the display room. She banged on the door in order to ascertain whether the shop would be opened. She turned away for a moment to speak to her daughter who was in an automobile parked near the door. When she looked again, the person inside had disappeared. “. . . I saw him . . . on the floor, looking around a table. . . . His face was right on the floor. . . .” The witness went to a place of business next door and had the police notified.

Officers Blankenship and Lowery arrived at about 11:30. They found all doors locked or barred. They saw the defendant inside the shop with a pistol in his hand. They also saw a human body and blood on the floor. They commanded the defendant to come out with his hands up. Instead, he concealed himself in the building. The officers then broke open a window and threw in a tear gas bomb. After a short interval, the defendant, forced out by the fumes, surrendered. He was unarmed. He had a bunch of keys in his pocket and a cigarette lighter with the letters “Bob” engraved thereon.

As soon as the fumes permitted, the officers entered the building. They found the nude body of Mrs. Williams behind one of the display tables. The body was warm and covered with blood.

The autopsy conducted by Dr. Gentry, a Pathologist, disclosed “gaping” head wounds and four penetrating stab wounds in the chest, and one in the abdomen. The chest wounds were five or more inches deep, two had penetrated the heart. In the opinion of Dr. Gentry, the stab wounds in the chest caused death.

A search of the room disclosed a part of a broken pistol grip near the body. The articles of clothing which the victim wore to work that morning were found on the floor of the bathroom. The undergarments were in disarray. Some were turned wrongside out. Near the clothing, the officers found a pair of sun glasses, a pocket knife and a pistol with the grip broken. The broken part found near the body fitted the broken grip of the pistol found in the bathroom.

A State’s witness testified that three days before the killing, he saw in the defendant’s possession a knife similar to the one discovered in the bathroom and introduced in evidence. A clerk, who worked in Blanton’s Variety Store near the shop, testified that about 9:30 or 10:00 on the morning of the homicide, she sold the defendant a pair of sun glasses. She exhibited to the jury a card which held eleven pairs of sun glasses — one space was empty. The witness stated the only sale from the card was made to the defendant. When asked whether the glasses found in the shop and introduced in evidence were the glasses she sold the defendant, she replied, “Yes, sir, I think they are.”

The victim’s daughter identified the cigarette lighter with the engraving “Bob” is belonging to her mother. This lighter was taken from the defendant’s pocket after his surrender. The three keys also taken from the defendant’s pocket were held together by two rings. One of the keys unlocked the south door, a second unlocked the north door, and the third unlocked the shop’s cash register.

An expert in blood analysis testified that the blood splotches found on the defendant’s clothing were of group A, the same type as the victim’s blood.
