PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Peoria County State’s Attorney Jodi Hoos announced indictments against Brandon Walker and Stephanie Jones, the parents charged in the murder of eight-year-old Navin Jones.

Navin Jones died on March 29. Prosecutors allege that he was abused and neglected by his parents for months at a house on North Gale Avenue in Peoria.

Walker and Jones have been charged with six counts of first-degree murder, each. Three of the murder charges carry a brutal and heinous enhancement, which could carry a penalty of life in prison.

Hoos said that the Peoria County State’s Attorney’s Office will also ask a judge to increase bond for Walker and Jones, which currently sits at $1 million.

Tuesday, Hoos shared new details surrounding Navin’s death.

She said text messages were shared between Stephanie Jones and Brandon Walker where they discussed locking him in his room, tying him up in the basement, and beating him.

Police reported that Stephanie and Brandon’s home was well-furnished, except for Navin’s room. Hoos said Navin’s room only had one toy, a dresser, and a bed that didn’t have sheets.

Hoos shared that Navin’s bedroom didn’t have a knob on it and a sign outside of his bedroom read “Do not give Navin any food or drinks. Do not let him out of the room he has what he needs until I wake up”. The note was presumed to be for Navin’s older brother.

According to Navin’s 1st-grade school records for 2020-2021, staff reported no problems with Navin eating, using the restroom, or behavioral issues. Records showed that Navin was social and “thriving”. He lived with his grandmother during this timeframe.

Stephanie Jones and Brandon Walker’s arraignment is set for Thursday.
