Autopsy concludes woman stabbed to death

Authorities have determined Erica Jackson, a 34-year-old found murdered in her Murphy Homes apartment Monday afternoon, was stabbed to death, Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said.

Results of an autopsy conducted Tuesday at the GBI office in Atlanta came in Wednesday, Jones said.“She had stab wounds all over her body,” he said.

Jackson, an Alabama native who worked as a nursing assistant at Macy Retirement Center in south Macon, was found by Macon police at her 2410 B St. apartment after her boyfriend, Reginald Copeland of LaGrange, reported entering the home and seeing large amounts of blood on the walls and floor.

Police said her body was located under a green rug in the living room of the two-story brick residence in the rear of the public housing complex in south central Macon.

Police have charged Jonathan Robinson, 39, with Jackson’s murder.

Robinson, 39, of Leon Drive, was arrested Monday near the corner of Second and Bowden streets — about six blocks from Jackson’s apartment — less than an hour after she was discovered.

He remains in custody at the Bibb County jail without bond on additional charges of burglary, auto theft and violation of state parole, according to authorities. Police have released no other details in the homicide investigation.
