Ronald Washington And Karl Jordan Jr. Found Guilty

“More than two decades after they killed Jason Mizell in his recording studio, Jordan and Washington have finally been held accountable for their cold-blooded crime driven by greed and revenge,” United States District Attorney Breon Peace said in a written statement. “That the victim, professionally known as Jam Master Jay, was a hip hop icon and Run-DMC’s music was born in Hollis, Queens, in this very district, and beloved by so many, adds to the tragedy of a life senselessly cut short. I thank the jurors for their service, and I commend our prosecutors, the NYPD detectives, both active and retired, and the Special Agents and investigators from the ATF and my office, for their relentless pursuit of justice for the victim, his family, and the community.”

Jay’s business manager, who received a gunshot wound to her leg, identified Jordan as the triggerman at trial. She also stated that Washington was present in the recording studio when the killing took place. She claimed it was Washington who pointed a gun at her and ordered her to get down on the floor.
