Woman charged in deadly South Fort Worth store robbery

FORT WORTH, Texas – A 19-year-old woman who admitted to police that she helped plan a south Fort Worth store robbery that killed a Fort Worth man is now facing a capital murder charge in the case.

Sonja Jones was arrested Monday on a capital murder warrant in connection with the Jan. 11 robbery and fatal shooting of Raymond Huerta, 26, at a Save-A-Lot grocery store where Jones previously worked.

Raymond Huerta, whose wife is an employee at the store at 5519 James Ave., was shot multiple times while he was trying to intervene in the robbery to protect his wife.

Jones’ boyfriend, 21-year-old Marquis Sypho, has already been charged with capital murder in the case.

Police say two 16-year-old juveniles — one male and one female — have also been arrested in the case, accused of delinquent conduct/capital murder.

Suspicions were raised about Jones’ involvement after an employee told investigators that Jones had entered the store twice shortly before the robbery — once to use the restroom and the second time to shop.

Jones later admitted to homicide detectives C.L. Brashear and Kyle Sullivan that she, her boyfriend and the two juveniles were at a gas station when one of the juveniles mentioned needing some “quick money.”

She told police they decided to rob Save-A-Lot because she used to work at the grocery store. She told investigators that it was Sypho who shot Huerta during the robbery.

She later directed investigators to the 2900 block of Quail Road, where she said Sypho and the juvenile male had discarded their clothes and the gun a few days after the robbery. Investigators reportedly found a pair of gray sweatpants with blood on them.

Jones was being held in the Tarrant County Jail Wednesday with bail set at $250,000. Sypho also remains held there in lieu of $350,000 bail.
