They murdered her together. That's what details from an Atlanta Police Homicide report indicate in the death of 21 year old Alexis Crawford. The Clark Atlanta Univesity student's roommate Jordyn Jones and Jones' boyfriend Barron Brantley are charged with Crawford's murder. Both are being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond. They are also 21 years of age.

It was on October 31 that Crawford and Jones had apparently gotten into a physical altercation. Brantley admits to stepping into the fight and choking Crawford to death.  Jones says that she used a black plastic bag to suffocate Crawford until she was no longer breathing.

Jones and Brantly apparently placed Crawford's body inside a plastic bin and transported it to Exhange Park in DeKalb County where they placed her in the woods.

Crawford's family reported her missing on November 1. Her body was found on Friday, November 8.
