In Thursday’s episode of The First 48, viewers will receive the whole tale of the murder of Darius and Christopher Jones, two brothers from Gwinnett County, killed by the family’s friend Walter Hill. Darius and Christopher Jones were shot to death by Hill. Green-Eyed Monster, the first episode of the true-crime series that will be shown on A&E, will have its premiere on May 19, 2022, at 9/8c. The following is the official synopsis of this week’s episode aired on Thursday: The brutal murder in Gwinnett County, Georgia, of two brothers as they slept. The detectives have a strong suspicion that a valued friend or colleague is the one who fooled them.

How did Walter Hill and Gwinnett residents Christopher Smith and Darius Myles meet?

In April of 2021, the brothers Darius Myles and Christopher Smith were gunned down and executed. Walter Devron Hill was captured in June of the same year. Hill, a former friend of the family, is being held accountable for the deaths of two brothers and the assaults of two others. On March 28, 2021, after an unsuccessful phone contact, Tyreene Brown travelled from her house in the northern part of Gwinnett County to the residence of her son, which was located in the Lawrenceville region. With the key in her hand, she discovered her sons were already dead inside. Darius and his younger brother Christopher were believed to be killed by gunfire while sleeping.

At the time, Darius was 28 years old and the father of four children. His relatives say that his brother, whom they torment by calling “CJ” and calling him by his real name, has just moved in with him. Christopher was the sixth and last child to be born to the couple. According to the reports, there were no obvious traces of a break-in or attempted break-in at the residence. Brown said that she and other family members had supplied information that assisted law enforcement in locating a suspect. According to a story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the emotionally upset mother confessed the confession. “This person used to come to our house often, especially for Sunday lunch,” Deja Myles, their sister, said as she was deeply heartbroken by the news.

Details on the evidence and the case

The detectives had amassed sufficient evidence to get a warrant for Hill’s arrest by the middle of the second week of June 2021. Mrs Brown and her family felt relieved once the arrest was made. She was so scared that the person who had killed her children might attack again that she strengthened the safety precautions in her home. The defendant, who is 28 years old, was arrested and charged with two counts of Felony Murder and Aggravated Assault. Walter Hill is serving a life sentence in the Gwinnett County Correctional Center in Gwinnett County, Georgia. The first episode of the new season of The First 48 will be shown on A&E on Thursday night at 9/8c.
