A Philadelphia man was convicted by a Bucks County jury on Monday, Nov. 15, 2021, of two counts of first-degree murder for killing two men in October 2019 at a campground in upper Bucks County.
Miles K. Jones, 42, shot and killed Eric Braxton, 41, and Arthur Hill, 46, both of Philadelphia, on Oct. 19, 2019, at the Homestead Campground in West Rockhill Township after the victims intervened in an altercation involving Jones and his girlfriend.
Jones was also convicted of 13 counts of recklessly endangering another person and one count each of firearms not to be carried without a license and possession of an instrument of crime. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Thursday, Nov. 18.
“I’m so proud of our prosecution team for getting justice for Mr. Braxton and Mr. Hill and their families,” District Attorney Matt Weintraub said. “Guaranteeing life sentences without the possibility of parole for the defendant will allow their families to grieve for them as they wish. This way, Mr. Jones doesn’t get one single win as a result.”
