Milwaukee Police are asking the public’s help to track down a suspect in a homicide case on the northwest side.

MPD says Ramone Jones is wanted for allegedly killing Jamie Wilson on Tuesday, Feb. 5 near 70th and Fiebrantz.

Police describe Jones as a black male, approximately 5’7, 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

If you know where he is or have more information on the case, please call 414-935-7360.

Jones has been formally charged for the murder, though he is still on the loose.

According to the criminal complaint, Jones stabbed his girlfriend, Wilson, to death. Police found her in the garage of the home they shared with six stab wounds, including a fatal one through her heart.

Before the attack, Jones was reportedly kicked out of the house after repeatedly threatening and abusing Wilson.

Officers went to the house multiple times days before the murder. On Jan 30, Jones allegedly fired a gunshot into the floor of the home during an argument, threatening to kill Wilson.

A few days later, the day before the murder, officers interviewed Wilson about the Jan. 30 incident. She told police Jones punched and kicked her in the street when she got home on Jan. 30.

Jones has a history of violent crimes. In 1995, Jones was convicted of Second Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, use of a dangerous weapon, in Racine County. He also has a felony offense of Possession of Short-Barreled Shotgun/Rifle, also from 1995.
