LaHood on New Genene Jones Indictment

By Elizabeth Ruiz

We’re learning more about a Bexar County Grand Jury indictment this week for convicted killer Genene Jones.

The former nurse is currently behind bars in Gatesville, serving sentences for two separate 1985 convictions for the murders of 15-month old Chelsea McClellan and four week old Rolando Santos.

The latest indictment stems from the killing of 11-month old Joshua Sawyer in 1981.

Investigators said Jones, who was working as a nurse in the pediatric intensive care unit at what was formerly known as Bexar Hospital, injected the boy with a toxic level of Dilantin.

District Attorney Nico LaHood told KTSA’s Trey Ware he spoke with Sawyer’s mother.

“She was in shock. I think she resolved herself to the fact that was not going to happen” LaHood said.

“She was told this could never be prosecuted… and some new developments occurred

Jones is suspected of killing up to sixty infants while working at hospitals in San Antonio and Kerrville.

LaHood created a task force after taking office in 2015 to investigate Jones and the crimes she’s accused of committing.
