NEW INFO: Marine Corporal Accused Of Killing Ex’s Teenage Sister.
Deputies now say a 15-year-old girl was trying to defend her sister from her ex-boyfriend when she was killed.
Onslow County deputies responded to 165 Weatherington Road at approximately 6:30 p.m. Saturday, to an apparent domestic dispute between Shermetryce Grasty and her estranged boyfriend, Corporal Pernell Jones. Grasty called 911 to alert law enforcement that Jones was coming to her home.
Authorities say once Jones arrived, violence broke out. Deputies say Grasty’s 15-year-old sister was stabbed in the stomach and shot in the chest. Anita Law was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Onslow County Deputy Todd McCallister arrested Jones after he crashed his vehicle trying to run from the house. The Marine went before a judge this morning and he’s being held without bond.
Jones is stationed at Camp Lejeune and is in the Marine Corps Engineer’s School. Officials say his program of study is an ammo technician.
