A man charged in the slaying of an Iowa City cab driver earlier this year now faces a new murder charge in the death of an Iowa City bail bondsman who was found shot to death in his office seven months ago.
Curtis C. Jones, 41, of Mount Pleasant will face a first-degree murder charge in the death of Jonathan Wieseler, police and prosecutors said at a news conference Monday announcing the charge.
Jones is already in jail facing a first-degree murder charge in connection with the death of Iowa City cab driver Ricky Ray Lillie, 46, in June. He is set to face trial on that charge on April 9, 2018, in Scott County.
Jones was out on parole, released last fall seven years early following an armed robbery conviction. He was paroled even though he had been deemed a high risk to commit more violence, according to state records.
Wieseler, 34, was found dead in his office at Lederman Bail Bonds on April 23. His death was ruled a homicide.
An Iowa City police complaint states that between 10:20 and 10:32 p.m. on April 22, Jones shot Wieseler in the head with a small caliber firearm, killing him.
