There’s being a crazy football fan, and then there is this guy. 20-year-old Pontrey O’Neal Jones of Austin, Texas, has been charged with murder after stabbing his step-mother to death after she had been ‘gloating’ about the Dallas Cowboys victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday night.
Jones told officers he had initially decided to break his little sister’s neck, but after changing his mind he had “developed a plan against” the victim, stashing a black-handled knife in the living room couch.
Police say Jones’ father and the victim watched the Cowboys game on the couch and, when the game was done and Jones had returned from getting fresh air, he noticed the victim was “disrespecting his father and gloating about how the Cowboys won the game.”
According to police, that’s Jones when retrieved the knife, walked behind the couch, lunged over Ruiz, and stabbed her multiple times. Her husband intervened to stop the attack and Jones then fled the apartment.
The already horrifying story quickly takes a turn into the bizarre, as Jones was located about 10 minutes later, lying naked in the grass in the 2400 block of South Congress Avenue. He was then taken into custody by police.
Responding officers began first aid on Ruiz until EMS arrived and took over rescue efforts. She was transported to South Austin Medical Center, where she was later pronounced deceased.
Jones is held on a $500,000 bond and charged with murder.
