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.

Final Words: “Well, I just want to let the James family and Lacey how sorry I am. I can’t believe I did something to her. I tried to be respectful from the time I took and become a better person. I hope I did better. I hope over time you could learn who I really am and I am not a monster. There was a reason why those things happened that day. I am so sorry Lacey; try to understand, I love you like my child.”

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.
