Skip to comments.Teen scalding suspect's boyfriend on life support (Facebook story]
Posted on 06/24/2011 2:20:49 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
A northwest Houston man was clinging to life at the hospital Thursday, almost a week after authorities said his teenage girlfriend scalded him with boiling water.
Keira Jones, 17, was charged with aggravated assault after the June 18 attack on Ira Jones, 33, inside the home they shared in the 1000 block of E. 32nd Street.
According to the criminal complaint filed against her, the teen became angry because Ira Jones had been talking to another woman. She then threw a pot of boiling water at him..
On what appears to be her Facebook page, Keira Jones traces the relationship with her much-older boyfriend.
On April 23, she posted being at home with her "husband," whom she identified as Ira Jones, Jr.
She continues along that vein for several days on Facebook, saying "He brings so much joy to me."
Her Facebook postings become darker within a few days. On May 2, Keira Jones wrote that she was "letting (him) go" and "can do better" without him.
In later expletive-filled Facebook postings, Keira Jones condemned people who "claim they love you but when you need them they (are) never there."
On June 19, the day after police said Keira Jones threw the boiling water, her Facebook status suddenly changed to "single."
On the day Harris County prosecutors filed the aggravated assault charge against her, Keira Jones posted her latest comment on Facebook.
"You shouldn't have hurt me the way you did and (you) wouldn't have (gotten) the reaction I gave you," she wrote.
Keira Jones is being held without bail at the Harris County Jail.

The part of the story that tells of her Facebook entries bothered me as much, if not more, than her assault (which no one should have suffered).
This obviously doesn't make sense as a universal claim, but it's a warning sign.
PS I cannot imagine how she thought she was going to get away with this, or how anyone else was going to want to even date her after she did that.
It’s as if a fantasy land mentality develops on social networking sites.
In this relationship since she was 15.
Inner City Democratic Party Community Organizers should be proud of the dependent class that they’ve “nurtured so well” and that keeps them in power.
Didn’t have to read further once I read her name............Yup, the Amish at it again. Geeeeesh!
No justification for the scalding...but just a question: In Texas, is it legal for a 33 year old to be having sex (I’m assuming here, but they were living together) with a 17 year old?
Just reread, and answered my own question...same last name, I’m assuming married then.
I realize that a mug shot doesn’t bring out the best in you but like a person once said “The camera adds 10 pounds” and the response was “must have had quite a few people taking your picture that day”.
This loverly 17 yo lass is exactly what J Jackson talks about when he says he would cross the street....
If this is what the inner city is putting out as the ‘norm’ it goes a long way to explain why so many inner city ‘male yutes’ are on drugs or in jail.
Nothing says “class” like a tattooed boob.
Today’s pop-culture youth is not innocent any more.
The laws need to treat them as adults.
We need to treat them like a coiled rattlesnake.
More and more idiot girls are getting tattooed.
It’s a fad I will be glad to see run it’s course.
WoW! What a Babe!
You just gotta love that tattoo on her chest.
I didn’t even have to see that picture since the intro to this article said her/it’s/his name. I knew it was an Amish woman...........LoL!
“No justification for the scalding...but just a question: In Texas, is it legal for a 33 year old to be having sex (Im assuming here, but they were living together) with a 17 year old?”
The answer to your question is: No.
Texas law, and Texans as well, do not approve of sex with beasts.
Realize the problem goes deeper than this story implies.
1. Sex was created by God for married people
2. Can’t really tell if these two were married, but they do have the same very common last name, so maybe they were, maybe they weren’t, but if married, adultery is one of the actions proscribed by the Ten Commandments. If they weren’t married, they shouldn’t have been in a sexual relationship because of the damage the sexual relationship does when the people aren’t married.
3. The guy “talking to” another woman probably means he had a problem staying zipped up
4. The damage such betrayal does to grown women is murderous, and to someone who is only 17, must feel horrible
5. Murders for adultery are commonplace
6. Adultery, while viewed as acceptable by our pagan progressive society, is not acceptable and is an egregious sin
7. Intent to kill would probably not be present in this scenario—doubtful the girl knew he would die, get burned yes, but doubtful she thought she was killing him
When will the execution be scheduled?
I'm thinking, with all the idiots out there that consider a Facebook confession to be the highest form of self-praise...maybe Facebook should add "incarcerated" as a status.
I see so many tattooed females at the mall and at the gym. What are these gals going to do when the fad fades away? I understand that laser tattoo removal is pretty expensive. That said, if there had been a tattoo shop just off the main gate at Clark Air Base, I’d probably be sporting a 50-year old faded blue Cobra (our squadron logo).
It’s so creepy — chilling.
I never had a desire to have a tattoo.
Seeing beautiful women desecrate their bodies with these things sickens me.
In my college days, I want to a tattoo parlor more than once but never could come to a decision on which tattoo I wanted to be scarred with the rest of my life. Thank God! Because since then I have decided that there really is nothing less attractive than a tattoo on a female. Jmho, I’m sure many disagree, and I have a lot of female friends who have them. I’m just so grateful that I don’t. So glad I heard my Dad’s voice in the back of my head saying, “I don’t care what all your friends are doing. If your friends all decided to jump of a cliff, does that mean you have to follow them?”
>>>...I have decided that there really is nothing less attractive than a tattoo on a female.
You are so right. Same goes for hadrware-body art. I have yet to hear anyone say, “My what a lovely girl...if only she had more tattoos. And piercings...”
Yeah, and they ain't so appetizin' on ugly gals neither.
There is no such thing as an ugly woman, only ugly personalities.
I agree with you and had many opportunities to do it but just never did. I just couldn’t see living with the same thign day after day.Now I”m really glad I didn’t because tattoos do not age well. All of those cute little dolpins on the ladies chests someday will turn into snakes.... :(
My niece is a rather tall, very attractive 37-year old woman. She has a small tattoo, not much bigger than a half-dollar, a shamrock. It’s on the inside of her left ankle and if you didn’t know it was there, you’d never notice it. A friend of mine married a woman who has an 8” scorpion tat on her right shoulder blade. What was she thinking?
