Execution Date Set for Longview Man

The execution date has been set for the man who carjacked and murdered a Gregg county senior citizen.

24-year old T.J. Jones was convicted in 1994 for killing 75-year old Willard Davis. Jones was seventeen years old at the time of the crime.

Today in court, Jones seemed relaxed and even smiling when the judge set his execution for August eighth.

Jones' last appeal was denied by the U.S. Supreme court paving the way to set the execution date.
