SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Tieray Jones walked Wednesday night, shortly after 8:30 p.m. 

A judge decided Wednesday not to order a second trial for Jones, who is accused in the disappearance and murder of his stepson Jahi Turner. 


Jones was charged with killing 2-year-old Turner. Jahi was last seen at a park near Balboa Park in April 2002. Jones reported the boy missing, telling police Jahi wandered off. A mistrial was declared on March 16. 

Jones replied just once to media as he walked out of jail: 

Question: "Jones, any message for Tameka" 

Answer: "Yeah. I love her."

Tameka Jones is the mother of Jahi Turner. The boy's body has never been found.
