Former NAU Student In Jail To Await Sentence In Shooting Death

Jake Bacon/Associated Press

A former Northern Arizona University student is in jail awaiting his upcoming sentencing in a 2015 shooting in which another student was killed and three others wounded.

Charges against Steven Jones originally included first-degree murder but he ended up pleading guilty earlier this month to manslaughter in 20-year-old Colin Brough's death and to three counts of aggravated assault.

A sheriff's official says Jones reported to the Coconino County jail Friday night.

The 23-year-old Jones' sentencing hearing is scheduled February 11 but Superior Court Judge Dan Slayton gave him a week before ordering him to report to jail after he pleaded guilty.
