    Wednesday, Naomi Jones would have turned 15. But her life was taken from her at the age of 12.

    Jones’ remains were recovered from Eight Mile Creek near Detroit Boulevard and Ashland Avenue June 5, 2017. Her accused killer, Robert Letroy Howard, was scheduled to go on trial for first-degree murder charges in March. The trial has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Prosecutors say Howard kidnapped and killed Jones. His trial is currently scheduled to start June 1.

    The state is no longer seeking the death penalty against Howard.

    Naomi Jones' mother has reached a settlement with Aspen Village Apartments' management and ownership in a lawsuit alleging negligent security at the complex led to her 12-year-old daughter's murder.

    On Monday, attorneys for Shantara Hurry announced they had settled with complex owner, Aspen Village Acquisition LLC, for $2 million. Hurry also reached a settlement with management group, Progressive Management of America Inc., under confidential terms.

    Hurry said she hopes the case causes other apartment complex owners to improve their standards of monitoring who is living or visiting a property.

    Tragic that this family hasn't seen justice in three years. Rest in peace, Naomi...
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
