Jacob Rogers, 27 of Racine, was charged with first degree intentional homicide, use of a dangerous weapon. If convicted, Rogers faces a lifetime prison sentence plus five years.
Jones, 27, of Kenosha, died of multiple gun shot wounds, according to Racine County medical examiner Michael Payne.
Rogers is believed to be traveling with his girlfriend, Katelyn A. McGraw, 22. Police say she is considered both endangered and a person of interest in this case. Anyone with information about this incident is warned to not approach Rogers.
The apartment had been wired for video and a digital video recording system recorded Rogers firing a semi-automatic handgun at Jones where he was sitting on a couch. After shooting Jones, Rogers walked away and then returned to shoot him again.
A witness, who was inside the apartment asleep at the time, told police he had been at the apartment with Jones and Rogers. The man told police that he woke up and saw Rogers with a gun and Jones on the couch after the shooting had taken place.
