Marquell Longs pleads not guilty to murder of Jennifer Jones at Rockford Citgo gas station


Marquell Longs, charged in the murder of 37-year-old Jennifer Jones at a Rockford Citgo gas station, pled not guilty in court on Thursday.

The shooting occurred shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday morning, November 11th, in the parking lot of the Citgo gas station at 4315 Auburn Street.

Longs was arrested by Rockford Police and the U.S. Marshalls Fugitive Task Force at a residence in the 1600 block of 10th Street.

The coroner say Jones was shot in the chest. She was alive when they arrived on-scene, but she was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Another victim, a 25-year-old man, later arrived at a local hospital suffering from gunshot wounds. 

Two other men have been charged in the crime.

Longs is due back in court in April.
