(Fox Lake) It took a jury in Dodge County less than one-hour Wednesday to convict a Fox Lake woman who helped her son cover-up the murder of his girlfriend. The trial against Marjorie Jones was scheduled to last until Friday. The state rested its case Wednesday morning and both sides gave their closing arguments by early Wednesday afternoon. The 65-year-old Jones failed to contact police after learning of the murder of Sesalie Dixon in December of 2016. Dixon was found with a gunshot wound to the head in the cab of a pickup truck owned by Jones son Laverne Ware Jr, who has a two-week jury trial scheduled in April. Judge Joseph Sciascia ordered a pre-sentencing investigation for Jones and a hearing is set for March 29.
