Suspect in Jonesboro Murder Now in Federal Custody in Colorado

MAY 12, 2005 - Posted at 3:34 p.m. CDT

 

DENVER, CO - The fourth and final suspect at large in the November 2004 robbery and murder of a Jonesboro man is now in the custody of "federal protective services" after turning himself in Thursday in Denver, Colorado.

Detective Vic Brooks with the Jonesboro Police Department confirmed that 29-year-old Wilson Pete Jarmon of Blytheville was taken into custody.  A source in Colorado told K8 News that Jarmon, known on the streets as "Pistol Pete," turned himself in to an employee of a private security company in Denver.

Jarmon was wanted by local authorities on charges of capital murder and aggravated robbery for his alleged role in the death of Jessie Jenkins, who was killed in an apparent robbery in his north Jonesboro apartment. 

Police previously arrested O'Rayshead Sims and Demarius Manning on similar charges for their alleged roles in the crime.  In late January, a third suspect identified as 21-year-old Jeffrey Matthews turned himself in to Jonesboro police officers.
