MI Man Accused Of Killing 2-Year-Old Girl Freed Early For Jail Work


The Michigan man accused of fatally shooting a 2-year-old girl execution-style was expected to be in jail at the time of the incident on an 11-month sentence, but he served only about 3 months after being released for good behavior, the Wayne County Sheriff's Office tells the Detroit News. Raymone Jackson, 25, was arraigned before Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner yesterday on charges including first-degree murder, torture and two counts of assault with intent to murder.

Groner recalled sentencing Jackson to 11 months of jail time and 2 years of probation on a drug charge in September. At the time of that sentence, Jackson was already on parole for a separate drug charge. So Groner was stumped when he asked Wednesday why Jackson hadn't done the 11 months but had instead been discharged from parole a week before prosecutors say he shot KaMiya Gross, 2, in the head on July 1 outside of her home. The sheriff’s office said Jackson was able to earn time off his sentence by working in jail. In 2010, Jackson was sentenced to 2-5 years for manufacturing and delivering a controlled substance more than 25 grams.
