Teaser: Reasonable Doubt–Episode “A Dying Declaration”

On a cool night in 1994, Antoine Stone can be found doing what he always does, ministering to others and witnessing the good news. To him, the person’s background isn’t important. He believes the word of God is enough to save anyone. But as he stands there preaching, a hooded figure emerges from the shadows on a bike and fires a shot that leaves Stone gasping for air on the pavement. Despite his condition, he makes one last statement. Meanwhile, when local investigators are unable to solve the crime, they put pressure on eyewitnesses to finger the mystery bike rider. However, their efforts might end up leading to the arrest of the wrong man.

Case File for Antoine Stone and Robert Jones

Antoine Jones wanted to put an end to the “questionable” relationship he had with Robert Jones. The longtime friends were battling their own demons, along with their orientation. Antoine knew that his side activities with Jones meant that he was not living a Christian life. He had planned to put an end to it.


What the NYC cops tried to determine was if Antoine Stone did end it, and if Robert Jones killed him in retaliation. For more than 20 years, Robert Jones has denied any involvement.
