Hello? Anybody in there?The daughter of a Jackson man who was doused with alcohol and severely burned last week said the most difficult thing to accept is that one of the men charged in the incident was her father's friend.
Jones' daughter said her dad told her that the men set him on fire because they were afraid Jones "was going to snitch to the police about some gun."
Jones has been friends with Brawner for three years, the daughter said, and the two men got along well.Jones' daughter said two women and another man were also at the house and saw Jones being set on fireSome nigger lover let these apes out of their cage:"Doctors don't even know if he has enough skin left to do skin grafts," she said. "He is sedated and paralyzed because he is in so much pain."
An inmate search on the Tennessee Department of Corrections Web site shows Stevenson was on parole until Jan. 31, 2010.
Lt. Tyreece Miller said Stevenson was arrested on an attempted second-degree murder charge in 1995 and aggravated burglary and robbery in 2005.
Brawner was arrested in 2005 for possession of marijuana and crack cocaine, Miller said.
