District woman arrested in SE stabbing

Updated Saturday 11:30 a.m.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this post misstated the charges against Felicia Dianne Jones. Jones was originally arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder while armed, police said in a statement. The charge was amended to assault with intent to kill while armed, based on information from the D.C. medical examiner’s office, a subsequent police statement said. This version has been updated.

A District woman from Southeast has been charged with assault with intent to kill while armed in the Thursday night stabbing death of Jodie Ward, police said Friday.

Felicia Dianne Jones is charged in the death of Ward, 30, who had no fixed address, according to police.

District police amended the charge against Ward Friday based on additional information from the Medical Examiner, police said in a news release. Police had originally arrested Jones Thursday on suspicion of second-degree murder while armed, according to a police statement.

The cause of Ward’s death remained under review late Friday, police said.

Ward was found dead at about 11 p.m. Thursday by District police and fire and emergency workers called to the 1100 block of Eaton Road SE for a report of an unconscious man, police said.
