BALTIMORE — Juliun Jones-Joyner was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for the first-degree murder of Jonathan Terry.

In January of 2014, Baltimore Police responded to the 3600 block of Liberty Heights Avenue. Upon arrival, officers located Terry who was suffering from gunshot wounds to his head and torso.

The victim was taken to Sinai Hospital where he died.

An investigation revealed that Terry was driving a car when he was shot in the arm causing him to crash into a tree. Terry tried to escape, but Jones-Joyner, who admitted to being in the car during the crash, caught him and shot him.

Bjorklund presented evidence to the jury indicated Jones-Joyner intended to purchase marijuana from the victim but tried to rob him instead.

“These types of crimes in Baltimore must stop if we are going to put an end to the senseless bloodshed,” said State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby. “With the strong partnership between my office and the Baltimore Police Department, we will ensure that justice is served.”
