Teen gave 33-year-old boyfriend 'ultimatum' to kill his mom within 5 hours before bludgeoning and strangling other woman to death

Kaitlan didn't get a chance to be one of the women on death row but she should have - or at least no chance at parole.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio teenager who bludgeoned her adult boyfriend's mother to death with a rock after giving him an ultimatum to kill her has been sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 25 years. Her boyfriend, who helped dispose of his mother's body, received the same sentence.

Kaitlyn Coones, 18, and Jonathon Jones, 34, pleaded no contest on June 4 to aggravated murder and abuse of a corpse in the 2023 death of 53-year-old Nicole Jones, according to Lucas County Prosecutor Julia Bates.

Prosecutors said Coones, who was 17 at the time of the murder and had been living with the Jones family, admitted to killing Nicole on April 19, 2023, because she felt Nicole disapproved of her relationship with Jonathon. Coones reportedly gave Jonathon five hours to kill his mother, threatening to end their relationship if he didn't. When he failed to do so, Coones took matters into her own hands.

Court documents state that the couple then wrapped Nicole's body in tarps and placed it in the trunk of her own vehicle. "The two of them had dinner with the body of Nicole Jones still in the trunk of the vehicle," said prosecutor Jennifer Liptack-Wilson.

The pair fled to Mexico, where they were arrested weeks later. Authorities have not found Nicole's body.

In court, Nicole's brother, Robert Jones, expressed the family's grief and sense of betrayal. "We are denied the closure that comes with laying a loved one to rest, and we are haunted by unanswered questions and horrific imaginings of her final moments," he said.

Coones and Jonathon also face a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the administrator of Nicole's estate, seeking $25,000 in damages and other associated costs.

Here's a video where she was on the run:

The Most Beautiful Girls to Ever Kill Their Own Mother

As human beings, we have trouble fathoming the idea of a young girl committing so atrocious a crime as murder. Much less, the murder of her own mother. The concept becomes even more inconceivable when it pertains to a beautiful young woman beautiful young woman with a loving family and the world at her fingertips. These girls aren't all women in prison now. Some have been released and disappeared into the mainstream. Scary, huh?  Nakisha Waddell     At age 14, Nakisha Waddell stabbed her mother, Vaughne Thomas, 43 times in their Virginia home.

She gives no reason or excuse o

Darlie Routier Texas

I was contacted by a penpal of Darlie Routier's who gave me some of the most recent advances in her case to share with you all. I began writing to Darlie in December of 2005 and she is one woman whom I will never understand how she got behind bars. Really. You know what else? With all the information ALREADY out there about this case, in addition to the newly discovered info, I think if you can't see this poor woman's innocence, you may just be an asshole. So many legal flubs, so much question and police innuendo that turned out to be nothing. So many fingers pointed and road blocks thrown up, I am surprised this case isn't used in other countries to point to the clusterfuck we call a justice system.  I believe Darlie could have been released ages ago if the state had done the necessary DNA testing. Sadly, Texas has tried to stop it in every unconstitutional way they could pull out of a bull's ass. BUT- there is hope on the horizon. This from Camp Darlie

Tina Brown, Heather Lee, & 16 YO Britnee Miller Killed Over Teen Jealousy

The first thing I thought of when I found this lady, Tina Brown, was that old Texas case where that mom went ballistic and tried to hire a hitman to kill her daughter's cheerleading rival. Wanda -something -or -other was her name. My sister lives close to her still. This story is even more brutal, if you can believe that. Tina's 16-year-old daughter, Britnee was on and off besties with another gal in their Pensacola, Florida trailer park, Audreanna Zimmerman. Like many teen friendships, it ran hot and cold depending on the current drama in the trailer park. In March of 2010, it was frigid and it was all over a boy. Audreanna Zimmerman Police reports say Britnee complained to her mom, Tina, and a neighbor, 27-year-old, Heather Lee, about the ongoing arguments with Audreanna, already a mom of two at 19-years-old. The trio decided to find her and hem her up so Britnee could fight her. Things got out of hand, They found Audreanna walking along a dirt road. Tina Brown u
