Baltimore police on Wednesday said they have arrested a man wanted in the kidnapping and death of Tiffany Jones in South Baltimore last month.
Willard Turner-Williams was arrested in Philadelphia on Friday, police spokesman Jeremy Silbert confirmed. He is charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping, arson and other charges, police said.
Jones, 29, was abducted Aug. 21 in the 3600 block of Potee St., according to police. She was forced into a pickup and driven away. Her body was found the next morning by firefighters in a burned vacant house less than a mile away on Seventh Street.
Police previously arrested and charged Bobie Barncord, 28, of Glen Burnie, with first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, kidnapping, false imprisonment, arson and reckless endangerment.
Charging documents allege that Barncord and Turner-Williams — who police said has the nickname “Philly” — killed Jones “through trauma and by setting her body on fire.” No motive is listed in the charging documents.
The charging documents said Turner-Williams grabbed Jones and placed a knife against her throat before forcing her into a truck driven by Barncord.
