“You are only 15 years old, but you are one of the most dangerous defendants I’ve had since I’ve started doing this, and I’ve been going on five years.” – Jackson Municipal Court Judge Reynolds
Fifteen-year-old Montravious Baker has been charged with murdering Sha’Maya, a 15-year-old Black female, and Williams Woods, a 39-year-old White male.
