Ex-wife of Dwight Jones holds news conference after Valley killings

FLAGSTAFF, AZ - The ex-wife of the man suspected of six recent killings in metro Phoenix, the ex-wife's divorce attorney and the ex-wife's current husband held a news conference Tuesday afternoon in Flagstaff. 

 

None had previously spoken publicly about the case involving 56-year-old Dwight Lamon Jones, who authorities say killed himself as police closed in on him June at an extended-stay residence in Scottsdale.

Dr. Connie Jones' current husband is Rick Anglin, a former police detective who reportedly first linked the killings to his wife's former husband.

Jones told reporters that she spent several years protecting herself from her ex, Jones.

She says she had around-the-clock security, drove different routes to work and went to different grocery stores. She also took firearms training and defensive driving. 

Connie Jones says she was certain she was her ex-husband's primary target after they divorced about eight years ago.
