CORRECTION: Our original story contained old information indicating Martin would be in court Monday morning. While Martin had been scheduled to be in court, by the time of publication, the judge had already granted the continuance.

UPDATE (5/16/22, 9:30 a.m.): Terrance Martin, a Prichard man accused of shooting his girlfriend, did not appear in court Monday morning, as previously reported. The judge in the case granted a motion to continue the trial to Oct. 31.

The shooting happened on September 10, 2019.

Arrest records show Martin was caught nine days later on Sept. 19, 2019 in New Orleans.

Investigators told a Mobile Judge that Martin admitted he shot Jones because she tried to break up with him.

Jones later died from her injuries, leaving behind her son.

WKRG News 5 spoke with Jones’ sister, Tina Paige Jnmarie after the shooting.

“He ruined our whole family because of this…just because a woman doesn’t want you doesn’t mean its okay to kill a woman,” says Jnmarie.
