A southwest Iowa man is charged in a weekend slaying. According to Council Bluffs Police, 20-year-old Terrance Jerrell Burnett was charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 23-year-old Dustin Joseph Jones, who was also from Council Bluffs. Authorities say a disturbance took place around two-A.M. Saturday at a home in Council Bluffs.
During the disturbance, Jones was allegedly stabbed by Burnett, but the incident was not reported to police. Police weren’t notified until Jones’ body was found two-hours later a short distance away from the home. Following an investigation, an arrest warrant was issued for Burnett, who was taken into custody later that same day.
