A 23 year old Miami woman, Danielle Jones, has been beaten into coma by her roommate, 35-year-old Byron Mitchell whom she found on Craiglist. Her family has said that Jones was “bludgeoned, strangled and her face mutilated” after she was beaten by Mitchell. She is also said to have sustained a severe brain injury.
Mitchell had moved in with Jones just a week before the incident occurred. She was said to have been celebrating her 23rd birthday on the day of the assault.
The attacker was arrested the day after the attack on 15 February, and is being held without bond on an attempted felony murder charge. He was booked at the Metro West Detention Center.
