A Jackson couple was indicted Monday by a grand jury on charges in connection with a March shooting, according to a Monday afternoon news release from the Jackson Police Department.

Police said Jermal Marable, 28, was indicted on charges of aggravated assault, leaving the scene of an accident and convicted felon in possession of a firearm. Marable's girlfriend, Tiffany Jones, 20, was indicted on a charge of accessory after the fact.

Charges were presented to the Madison County Grand Jury Monday by the department concerning the couple's involvement in the shooting.

Marable and Jones are scheduled to be arraigned on August 5 in Madison County Circuit Court.

Police said Jones was released from the Madison County Jail on March 23 after posting a $30,000 bond after being arraigned. Marable is currently being held at the Madison County Jail on $250,000 bond.

Police said at 4:28 a.m. on March 5, Jackson police responded to the parking lot of 161 W. University Parkway. A woman told officers that she was driving in the area of Fairway Blvd. and Moize Cut-Off Road when someone shot at her from a Nissan Maxima.

The woman drove to the parking lot and the Maxima followed her to the parking lot before leaving, police said. The woman was not injured and there was no indication that her vehicle had been struck.

About 10 minutes later, an officer saw a car matching the description of the Maxima in the area of N. Royal Street and Oak Park Drive. The Maxima crashed into a utility pole near the intersection and the driver ran away.

While officers were working the crash scene, they found the gun. Investigators developed Marable as the suspect and issued a warrant for his arrest.

Police said around 11 a.m. on March 22, investigators with the Jackson Police Department's Gang Unit and the U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Marable at the Travelers Inn, located at 2247 North Highland Avenue, in Jackson.

Marable was in the motel room with Jones, who investigators charged with being an accessory after the fact because she had prior knowledge that Marable was wanted.

Marable is also wanted for failure to appear in court in Morgan County, Tenn, police said. The underlying charge in Morgan County is aggravated assault.
