Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide: Stabbing victims had once been married

BUHL, AL (WBRC) - A neighbor of Angel Jones, the woman Tuscaloosa County investigators say stabbed and killed two people in a mobile home in Buhl, says Jones told her the stabbing was provoked.

"She said they attacked her and she attacked them back and she thought they were dead. She wanted to know if I wanted to go in and look at them," Tina Hope said.

Jones is now charged with capital murder in those deaths.

Monday morning, authorities released the names of the victims, Roger Alan Gregg and Margaret Hutchins. We're told they had previously been married but remained close, according to investigators.

Gregg's body was found in his trailer in the Crooked Creek Trailer Park in Buhl Saturday night.

His neighbor Glenda Marler is still disturbed by his death.

"I was devastated. I couldn't believe because like I said I had just seen the gentleman in the yard Friday afternoon when I was leaving out and it was heartbreaking," Marler said.

Hutchins was pronounced dead at DCH hospital.

"You never know what goes on behind closed doors. Just a few house down, its kinda scary even though its domestic violence, you don't know if they have a gun if they're going to shoot out," Hope said.

Investigators say both had been stabbed numerous times.

"It was a very violent scene. Fortunately, we have a suspect in custody," Lt. Kip Hart with Tuscaloosa Metro homicide said.

It is unclear what relationship Jones had to the victims.
