NAU Shooter Steven Jones To Be Sentenced Tuesday In Flagstaff

NAU shooter Steven Jones will find out his sentence in a Flagstaff courtroom Tuesday. Jones has been in jail for nearly a month after turning himself in, after he pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter and three counts of aggravated assault. Jones was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of student Colin Brough and injuring students Nick Piring, Kyle Zientek and Nick Prato back in October of 2015. The first trial ended in a hung jury and he entered a guilty plea just days before the retrial was supposed to begin last month. Jones faces a maximum of ten years in prison and could also to pay up to $100-thousand dollars to each victim and Brough’s family in accordance to the deal. The state has recommended the maximum ten year sentence for Jones. The all-day hearing is set to begin at 9 a.m. at the Coconino County Courthouse.
