It’s pretty rare that a murder takes place at one of the nation’s top hospitals but that’s the reality for one man, a father of nine, who was killed this week in a bizarre murder while one of his sons was being treated at the same hospital.

The alleged murderer – his own wife. Apparently the couple argued and Christopher Yancey, Sr. was stabbed to death by his wife and mother of six of his children, Anita Nicole Jones.

The Christian Post reports:

A Baltimore Police Department release said at approximately 2:13 p.m. police were called to the Johns Hopkins Hospital’s Bloomberg building about a suicide. When they arrived, hospital staff told them the father, Christopher Yancey Sr., and his 30-year-old wife, Anita Nicole Jones, had been arguing while waiting for a medical procedure to be conducted on their 14-year-old son. Jones then emerged from the boy’s room and declared Yancey had cut himself and left before police arrived.

When hospital staff entered the room, they found Yancey suffering from lacerations to his upper body. He later died from his injuries. An investigation by police later revealed that Yancey’s injuries were not consistent with an apparent suicide. Jones was apprehended a day later and changed with first-degree murder.

“One of the glaring things that lead us down the path of this being a homicide was the fact that there was no weapon in the room,” Baltimore Police Chief T.J. Smith told ABC 2. “There was no reason to believe that anyone else had committed this crime.”

Smith further noted that the fact that Yancey died in a hospital like Johns Hopkins spoke to how seriously he was wounded.

“This is a world-renowned hospital, Johns Hopkins University, and unfortunately they weren’t able to save him. So this speaks to how significant these injuries were that occurred inside of a room,” Smith said.

Yancey’s family, who are now grieving his loss, told the network that Jones was the mother of six of his nine children and he had another child on the way.

“I don’t know how to do this,” Yancey’s mother, Christine Ware, said of her son’s death. “I’m mourning for my son. I miss my son.”

Yancey’s brother has set up a GoFundMe to help with the children’s expenses.

  1. Black women are mean as hell. They always feel that they are always right. Don’t argue with them because they always like to put the last word in

  2. Outrageous! What an incredibly vile and stupid act. This woman just doesn’t give a damn about anything or anyone. Just throw her up under a prison and and forget about her. There’s no justice society can mete out that would be sufficient. Hopefully in that next realm there is. Condolences to those poor kids and the husband.

  3. This is beyond crazy and sad. people need to think before they do things that you can’t recover from. Now he is dead, children are fatherless and she is going to jail for 25 years or life. There is nothing that can make you kill another person, especially your husband, the father of your children. This is just stupid. She did this while her son was in the hospital, black women have to do better. Please stop all this madness. Love one another or go your separate ways!

  4. People of all races seem to be just really going crazy. It’s just complete madness the world is a very dark place I just pray that things will get better

    In my eyes, this tragic event is unexplainable. R.I.P. May your 9 + children find their way through life without your physical presence to be there to guide them! SMH
