Steven Jones Reports To Jail To Start Serving Time After Pleading Guilty In The NAU Shooting Case

The man who pleaded guilty in connection with the fatal shooting of a NAU student and the wounding of three others, has reported to jail. Steven Jones turned himself in to authorities Friday after he pleaded guilty last Thursday to one count of manslaughter and three counts of aggravated assault after fatally shooting Collin Brough and injuring students Nick Piring, Kyle Zientek and Nick Prato back in October of 2015. Jones claims the shootings were in self-defense. He was tried for first degree murder back in April of 2016, but the trial ended in a hung jury. A retrial was supposed to have started this past week after the first degree murder charge was lowered to second-degree murder. Then last week Jones agreed to a plea deal. Jones will be back in a Coconino County courtroom on February 11th to find out how long he will remain in prison. He faces a maximum of ten years in prison and will also to pay up to $100-thousand dollars to each victim and Brough’s family in accordance to the deal.
