BELTON — A 31-year-old Killeen man accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend multiple times in the parking lot of a Killeen IHOP in February was indicted on a first-degree murder charge by a Bell County grand jury on Wednesday.

Thomas Jeremy Jones was arrested Feb. 24 in connection with the death of 21-year-old Kirsten Nicole Farr.

Police said Jones accosted Farr in the early morning hours of Feb. 23 in the parking lot of the IHOP in the 700 block of West Central Texas Expressway. Witnesses said Jones stabbed Farr multiple times while she sat in the passenger side of a vehicle. He then fled the scene.

An arrest affidavit stated police arrived on the scene to find Farr suffering from multiple stab wounds. She was taken to Fort Hood’s Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, where she later died.

Jones was arrested in Nolanville the following day, shortly after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Court records showed Jones was arrested in December 2011 after Farr told police he punched her in the face during an argument. Farr did not press charges, and the case against Jones was dismissed in September after he completed anger management counseling.

Jones is in Bell County Jail on $1 million bond.
