The Matthews man charged in the fatal DWI accident that claimed the lives of two women made his first court appearance today - on crutches - via video monitor.
Matthews police charged Justin Wayne Jones with 2 counts of Involuntary Manslaughter and 2 counts of Felony Death by Vehicle on Saturday. Jones is currently in the Mecklenburg County jail and is being held on $400,000 secured bond.
Marie Crook and her daughter Jennifer Hunt were killed when their SUV collided with a vehicle driven by Jones on Highway 51 in Matthews Wednesday night. Family members say Hunt just picked up Crook from her job at the Lowe's store around the corner. Two of Hunt's children were also in the SUV. They are recovering from injuries.
Jones didn't say anything and is due back in court January 16th for a bond hearing.
Jones' father and sister were in court to support him but didn't say anything to the Judge.
Jay Hunt, the brother of Jennifer Hunt and son of Marie Crook, told WBTV a memorial will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Next Level Church in Matthews.
"They were the best of us, the world is a poorer place without them in it. We are now and forever focused on the children. We ask that everyone makes an effort to forgive the driver of the other car and remember none of us are perfect. Jennifer and mom (Marie) would be the first to tell us that we all make mistakes, and we all deserve forgiveness," Hunt said in a statement to WBTV.
