UPDATE: Jones County teen convicted of killing mother's boyfriend denied new trial

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A Jones County teen convicted of killing his mother's boyfriend will not get a new trial.

A judge denied Alex Crews' request for a new trial Monday.

Crews was convicted of killing Timothy Williamson in summer 2014.

He said there was not enough evidence or witnesses to convict him. The judge disagreed.

Crews and his 18-year-old friend Timothy Meadows were sentenced to 20 years in prison with 15 years to serve for murdering 44-year-old Timothy Williamson.
