Accused teen killer gets another delay in case

FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield man accused of raping and strangling a 13-year-old girl before dumping her body in Allan Witt Park was in court briefly Monday to get another delay in his case.

Anthony L. Jones had been scheduled for a probable cause hearing in July. That hearing was canceled Monday by Judge E. Bradley Nelson at the request of Jones’ defense team, who agreed to a three-month delay. Nelson rescheduled the probable cause hearing to start Oct. 20.

Jones has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge with three special circumstances that could result in the death penalty. He was arrested in February 2013, several days after the naked body of 13-year-old Genelle Renee Conway-Allen was discovered on the morning of Feb. 1, 2013.

The most recent delay was due partly to prosecutors just recently sharing several emails from the doctor who performed the autopsy on Conway-Allen, according to one of Jones’ defense attorneys. Six months ago, defense attorneys sought to have the case thrown out after learning Dr. Susan Hogan had sent an email to prosecutors saying her autopsy revealed no signs of trauma common in rape cases and suggested that Conway-Allen may have died during consensual sex.

Jones is set to be back in court July 25, when his attorneys may request a special hearing about the emails and related concerns.

Jones remains in jail without bail.

    Going on two years before he even has an actual court date. What a joke. It should again be noted that a 13 year old cannot consent. Pull the trigger and give him what he deserves.

    @B-I know it's frustrating, but a two year wait is quite normal for Solano County. With the prosecutors always keeping info from the defense, and the defense asking for time to read the info they just acquired, it's shocking cases ever reach a conclusion here. I'm just going to keep telling myself"At some point, all the delays will have run out, and it will have to start dealing with the actions that took place the day he murdered an innocent child.There's also the fact of how the other inmates will treat a Child Rapist and Murderer in prison, that keeps me from losing my mind behind the sneaky dirty actions of the Prosecutors office."

    It really is a shame, and eye opening, that this is the normal. Unfortunately this sick pedo is protected by the system and the other inmates, who would love to have a run in with him, dont have access to him. Pedos get a comfy sheltered life behind bars.

    Omg delay, delay, delay... if this was one of any judge family members like a grand daughter, sister, niece the list goes on. would have this case already settled. This pos new what he was doing and to think he could get off cause of a autopsy and what the dr option was is observed give me a break. This is a, slap in the family of the victim he should have already had his case settled what a joke this court system is.

    Just goes to show how inept the DA's office was in handling this case and how poorly equipped the justice system is in making sure victims get justice. Travesty of justice to insinuate a thirteen year old had consensual sex with this monster. The DA should have resigned over enabling a corrupt coroner who merely retired but should have been fired.

    He dumped the body. Just to cover Hogans feeble birdbrain, DA needs to add charges for improperly disposing of a corpse.

    Case would be over if the DA didn't feel a need to cheat. Says something about the confidence they have in their case (or their prosecutor)
