A 21-year-old chemistry student at Clark University in Atlanta was killed Tuesday, after responding to a Craigslist ad for an iPhone. James Jones, Jr. travelled from Atlanta to Marietta, Georgia to examine the phone, when he was ambushed by the three men who had posted the illegitimate ad. Three men are in custody Thursday, charged with murder, armed robbery and aggravated assault in connection with the killing. Jones was killed sitting in his car, according to police.
