FAIRFIELD — Accused child killer Anthony L. Jones was in court briefly Tuesday for the setting of a future hearing date to set a future hearing date.

Jones was ordered to be back in court June 6 when a date may be set for a hearing on defense attorney requests to get court orders requiring prosecutors turn over some evidence while also trying to bar other evidence from being considered at future hearings.

He is accused of kidnapping, raping, sodomizing and strangling 13-year-old Genelle Conway-Allen in February 2013.

Jones is currently scheduled for probable cause hearing in July for a special circumstances murder charge that could result in the death penalty. Jones’ defense attorneys have said repeatedly they will not be prepared for the hearing because prosecutors have only recently shared some of the evidence related to the case.

District Attorney Donald A. du Bain has not said whether or not his office will seek the death penalty for Jones.

    Mr. Mendenhall is an excellent attorney from what I see. A distant relative was there today and made a horse's rear end out of herself by complaining how the wheels of justice are clogged and slow in Solano County. She complained that nothing really happens at continuation and trial readiness hearings and how inconvenient it is for her to travel from Contra Costa County to the hearings. Why can't the DA's office explain to her how things work?----there isn't a trial the week after a charge is brought. Sounds like the DA doesn't do a good job dealing with the victims!
