Suspect Charged With Murder of Officer Walker


Rafael Jones—a 23-year-old North Philadelphia man—has been charged with the murder of Officer Moses Walker Jr. Jones had multiple prior offenses, including convictions on firearm charges. He allegedly pulled a gun on his own sister a few year ago, but she wouldn’t testify against him. A judge ordered him to appear in court in March after an arrest violated his parole. He was supposed to be electronically monitored by the state. It’s unclear why he wasn’t. [6 ABC]
