UPDATE: Joshua Jones has been charged with murder in Richmond County. Investigators tell FOX54 Jones shot his girlfriend, Cayce Vice, Saturday morning at her apartment on Washington Road.

Joshua Termaine Jones appeared before a magistrate judge in Aiken Monday morning.

The 26 year old is charged with killing Master Corporal Sandra E. Rogers of the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

Jones' first appearance was an explosive one. Jones entered the room in an orange and white striped jail jumpsuit. During the hearing he mouthed profanities at courtroom cameras while being restrained by officers.

Outside of the courtroom Jones' father told reporters he believes his son's actions are the "work of Satan". Jones' father also tells FOX54 he believes his son is mentally ill.

Police say Jones killed his girlfriend in Georgia, then fatally shot Rogers in Eustis Park.

FOX54 was the first to break the story Saturday morning after a tip from viewers. We will have much more on this story and continue to follow the investigation.
