Ebony Jemison, the woman accused of shooting her, was initially expected to face manslaughter charges. Further investigation reportedly revealed that it was Jones who initiated the confrontation, however, and a grand jury found sufficient evidence to charge her with manslaughter.

Lt. Danny Reid of the Pleasant Grove Police Department released a statement regarding the development:

“Let’s not lose sight that the unborn baby is the victim here. She had no choice in being brought unnecessarily into a fight where she was relying on her mother for protection.”
