The exact number of murders remains unknown because after the first conviction, hospital officials destroyed records of her activities to prevent further litigation and public outrage.
In 1985, Jones was convicted of two crimes: the murder of Chelsea McClellan and the attempted murder of Rolando Santos. She was sentenced to 99 years in prison, but is scheduled to receive parole in 2017 due to a law in place at the time of her sentencing to reduce prison overcrowding.
