That's horrible. They both need to be in jail. I've been watching a lot of old Lifetime movies lately and this sounds like one of the plots. Sadly, it's real life. RIP Alexis Crawford.

This chick is a certified goon. I'm starting to think her choice in boyfriends was water seeking its own level.
Yeah at first I was having sympathy thinking she just got caught up with the wrong guy or was manipulated into being an accomplice. But after the hearings and that she got into a physical fight with Alexis over this demon boyfriend of hers, it’s clear she’s mentally impaired. the fact that she left the boyfriend alone in her apartment with her roommate after he raped her and after she had spent time at the hospital with Alexis having a rape kit performed, the fact that she retrieved a plastic bag to put over her friends face to suffocate her, the fact that she dropped the body in a park, went to sleep and then later to a party like nothing happened and then proceeded to post missing fliers on social media, the fact that she called the parents to tell them no dna was found when it was.

This doesn’t sound like someone who is being told what to do, she’s acting out of her own free will and desperation to be accepted and loved by a man who has no capacity to do so. Instead of recognizing it as such, she seemed to spite the friend because he “liked” her (which rape doesn’t even suggest, but in her crazy mind it does). I really don’t understand how people think this way.

She’s as mentally impaired as any other murderer. She needs to be locked up for a very long time.

As of August 2020 these two haven't had a trial yet.

Suspect in murder of Clark Atlanta Univ. student denied bond​

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – An Atlanta judge denied bond to one of the suspects charged with the murder of a Clark Atlanta University student last October.

Jordyn Jones and then-boyfriend Barron Brantley are charged with the murder of Alexis Crawford, 21, and have been held at the Fulton County Jail on murder charges since their arrest in November. Defense attorneys for Jones filed a motion claiming she should be granted bail because she, "has never committed a crime and comes from a good family."

Jones’ father told police in November that she was on probation for a DUI in Michigan. Members of her family have told CBS46 they were concerned about her behavior since she began dating Brantley.

“As to the issue of no criminal history, she was in fact on probation at the time when this situation occurred and had some knowledge of her obligations under the criminal law," said a Fulton County judge during the hearing. "The court does not find that there’s been a sufficient showing to justify the reconsideration of bond, particularly in light of the misrepresentations that were made to cover up the offense. For those reasons bond will remain."

At the time of the murder, Crawford was roommates with Jones and were best friends at Clark Atlanta University. Their relationship became strained after Crawford filed a police report accusing Brantley, Jones’ boyfriend, of sexually assaulting her. The alleged incident happened the week before Crawford was murdered.

Crawford was found dead at Exchange Park in DeKalb County park days after she vanished from her off-campus apartment. Reports from Fulton Superior Court confirmed Crawford was strangled to death. Barron later admitted he choked Crawford with his hands, while Jones suffocated her with a trash bag.

Crawford’s family spoke Wednesday and expressed outrage that Jones might be released on bond. Rev. Markel Hutchins, who spoke on behalf of the family at the press conference, said even though Jones comes from a good family, in no way does that absolve her of responsibility for her actions. Crawford’s parents told Hutchins if Jones is released, they fear for the safety of two of their children who are students at Clark Atlanta University and Georgia State University.

“She put a plastic bag over her roommate and best friend’s head that in it of itself means she is on fit for society and should never see the light of day again. Period!,” exclaimed Markel.
