Man found guilty of killing Iowa City bail bondsman

January 25, 2019

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A man already serving life in prison for killing an Iowa City cab driver has been convicted of murder in the 2017 shooting death of an Iowa City bail bondsman.

Television station KGAN reports that a jury convicted 42-year-old Curtis Jones on Wednesday of first-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Jonathan Wieseler.

Prosecutors say Jones was seen on security video near the crime scene and that Wieseler’s DNA was found in Jones’ vehicle.

Jones was also convicted in November of first-degree murder for the 2017 death of cab driver Ricky Lillie and sentenced to life in prison.

Jones committed the murders after being released years early from prison in late 2016 by the Iowa Board of Parole. He had been serving a stint for armed robbery.
