A court brief filed on behalf of Matthew Steven Jones seeks to suppress a photographic identification procedure that was used in accusing him of the first-degree murder of his girlfriend, Desia Rae George of Fries.
The brief was filed in Grayson County Circuit Court through his attorney, Karen Boyer of Hillsville.
George, 33, was reported missing on April 16, 2013. Her body was found weeks later in a ditch beside Brush Creek Road. A witness said she saw Jones near the area at night around the same date and spoke with him before continuing on her way.
