A Jacksonville, Fla., man has been charged with killing his mother in her home and dumping her head three blocks away in a plastic bag, police said.
Jumar Henry, 21, was arrested Sunday and charged with murder after members of his church noticed scratches on his face and blood under his fingernails, and called police, The (Jacksonville) Florida Times-Union reported Tuesday.
The body of Jennifer Renee-Henry Ling, 43, was found inside her home and her head was found blocks away in a bag in an empty lot, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Lt. Larry Schmitt said.
Witnesses allegedly told police they saw Jumar Henry walk into the lot carrying a bag Saturday night and then leave without it several minutes later.
Jumar Henry came to the sheriff’s office for an interview Sunday and then tried to ‘force his way out of the homicide office’ when he was told he couldn’t leave, Schmitt said.
