Arrest was made at home in Oconee Co

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office says a 36 year-old woman from Oconee County is facing a murder charge stemming from the death of her 7 year-old child: the body of Maddox Jones was found Monday at a home in Bishop. Alison Jones was, at last report, being held without bond in the Morgan County Detention Center in Madison on counts that include murder and aggravated assault.

There was no immediate word from investigators on why the child’s death was initially considered suspicious.
