The Cuyahoga County court has accepted a guilty plea from the man accused of killing a Salvation Army worker and going on a carjacking spree at the end of last year.
William T. Jones pleaded guilty to 35 counts, including the aggravated murder of Salvation Army worker Jared Fier-Plesec.
On the morning of December 2, officers first responded to the Euclid Beach Villa apartments on East 156th Street for a 21-year-old man who was shot in the head. Fier-Plesec was pronounced dead in the lobby of the building. Jones fled the scene and went on a carjacking spree that took him across Cleveland and into Lakewood.
Jones will be sentenced on May 21. He faces a maximum sentence of life without the possibility of parole, plus 241 years.
