09/05/22 JONES RICHARD Unk 9 3 1922 Unknown Justifiable Homicide: Sunday afternoon Constable Brown went to Heth to serve some papers. While there, Deputy Sheriff Pennington turned over two prisoners to the Constable to be carried to Forrest City-a negro man and woman charged with illegal co-habitation. When about a mile out from Heth on way to Forrest City, Richard Jones, husband of the woman, armed with a shot gun attempted to get a shot at the prisoners. To protect the prisoners and himself, Brown let go of the steering wheel of the car to reach for a pistol.The car took a lunge for the ditch, but just before it went over Brown took a snap shot and missed the man. The jar of the car threw the Constable on his "beam ends," when he pulled the trigger again, this time striking Jones under the shoulder, and killing him almost instantly.
