March 1 Hearing Set for Killer's Early Release
News

A Dodge County woman released a year early, after being convicted of killing an infant, will stay free for at least another six weeks.

That's according to Tim Vaughn, district attorney for the Oconee Judicial District.

 

In 2009, Amy Rogers Jones was convicted of killing a three-month-old girl that she was babysitting. Investigators called it a shaken-baby case.

 

But a clerical error by the Dodge sheriff's office, set her free last month, a year ahead of schedule.

Vaughn says he filed a motion this week asking a judge to send Jones back to prison.

On Friday, he said, Judge Sarah Wall set a hearing date on his motion for March 1.

He says the judge's letter said Jones should get at least 30 days notice on the hearing.
