Brownwood fugitive declines extradition for homicide-related charges

BROWNWOOD, Texas - A Brownwood woman refused to waive her right to be extradited to St. Louis County, Missouri for a conspiracy to commit homicide charge Tuesday, claiming police have the wrong person.

Anquette Shanea Doss-Jones was arrested on the warrant last week by Texas Ranger Jason Shea, according to Brown County Jail records.

Court documents filed through the 35th Judicial District Clerk's Office state she was charged for conspiracy to commit a homicide in August of 2016. The alleged incident happened in the town of Clayton, though few other details were released.

Doss-Jones told 35th District Judge Steve Ellis during Tuesday's extradition hearing that law enforcement arrested the wrong person. She said in court she's aware her husband was charged with murder in Missouri, but that the alleged crime has nothing to do with her.

Doss-Jones requested a court-appointed lawyer, postponing her extradition hearing.

Ellis set her bond at $500,000.
