MILES JONES SENTENCED TO CONSECUTIVE LIFE SENTENCES FOR KILLING TWO MEN AT UPPER BUCKS CAMPGROUND

A dozen relatives and friends of Eric Braxton and Arthur Hill spoke Thursday about the two “good and caring” men gunned down in a shooting rampage in October 2019 at a campground in upper Bucks County. 

Braxton, 41, was a teacher who loved being outdoors and wanted his family and friends to know that there was “more to life than the streets of Philadelphia.” He enjoyed “nature and the camaraderie” of camping with loved ones, his mother said. 

Hill, 46, also of Philadelphia, was one of Braxton’s close friends and also an outdoorsman, regularly inviting friends and relatives to join them on “camping trips meant for fun and bonding.” His son said he showed up at 5:30 a.m. on the morning of Oct. 19, 2019, to make sure he and his brother were at the next campout at the Homestead Campground in West Rockhill Township. 

That camping trip should’ve been just as relaxing as the others, but instead became a nightmare when one of their guests Miles K. Jones, 42, of Philadelphia, opened fire, killing Braxton and Hill and sending 13 other campers in their group hiding in the woods.
