After Crawford was reported missing, Jones told police she didn’t know her roommate’s whereabouts. But on Friday, following a weeklong search for Crawford, Brantley admitted to investigators he had choked and killed her, according to court documents. Crawford’s body was found Friday, Atlanta police said.
Brantley, 21, was arrested late Friday and charged with felony murder. Jones, also 21, was arrested Saturday morning and also charged with felony murder. Both were being held without bond Tuesday morning at the Fulton jail.
Crawford’s death shocked the Clark Atlanta community, which hosted a candlelight vigil in her honor Sunday night. A Saturday funeral is planned in her Athens hometown, according to the Rev. Markel Hutchins, who has served as a family spokesman.
