Javaris Crittenton returned to Atlanta Thursday night to face murder chargers and was suppose to have his first court appearance Friday. But Crittenton waived his first court appearance. From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Crittenton, who had been held more than two weeks in Los Angeles, returned to Atlanta on Thursday night to face charges that he shot and killed the mother of four.

“Thank you very much, judge,” Crittenton’s attorney, Brian Steel told Fulton County Magistrate Court Judge Maureen Malone.

Both Jones’ and Crittenton’s mothers were on-hand for the hearing, although both declined to comment to reporters.

Jones’ fiancee, Ha’Rel Butler, said he wasn’t sure whether Crittenton was guilty. Butler said he was eager for the judicial system to take its course.

“I just say let the courts handle it,” he said.

A bond hearing for Crittenton is scheduled for Sept. 30.

Crittenton arrived from Los Angeles, accompanied by officers of the Atlanta Police Department Fugitive Unit.

Crittenton is charged with homicide murder, felony murder and aggravated intent to murder.

Not sure why Crittenton decided to hold off on facing a judge but he’s going to have to answer to these charges sooner or later. We’ll continue to keep you updated on this story.
