Posted

A teenage girl who remains in police custody over the killing of her mother's ex-boyfriend has been released despite being charged with attempted murder over the attack.

Emily Cate was charged with the murder of the 19-year-old woman, Jessica Jones, in March.

Ms Jones was shot dead in front of her fiance and child at their Sydney home on March 5, after she and the ex-boyfriend, John Chubb, had a row.

In an update to the High Court on Wednesday, the court announced the 21-year-old would return to her father in Darwin to face the attempted murder charge.

A spokeswoman for the state's Serious and Organised Crime Command said that while Ms Jones was not considered a person of interest in the case, she was under "significant consideration" and it was possible she could be charged with another offence.

The 19-year-old woman's family told the ABC's Nightline the murder was "unintentional".

Ms Jones had been living in an off-licence apartment in Cairns, whe더킹카지노re the family had been since before her mother's death in April.

But after Ms Jones 우리카지노was charged, the 17-year-old was charged with murder, attempted murder and threatening a person with a knife.

In a statement released to media on Tuesday, the girl's brother-in-law, Aaron Jones, said the death was an "act of terror".

"Obviously there is a lot of pain and grief," Mr Jones said.

"We have had to put our lives on hold until 바카라사이트this case is all sorted out and we can move forward with our lives.

"What's important is the family understands this is a matter that's ongoing and something they can take time and reflect on."

Police have not said what might have triggered the violent outburst, but earlier this week, Ms Jones's aunt, Linda, told the media that she believed the pair were arguing over a man.

Ms Jones's cousin, Michael Jackson, confirmed Ms Jones's condition at the Royal Children's Hospital in Sydney.
