John Edwards James claims not enough evidence to convict him

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) A man facing charges in the murder of his estranged wife and her two sons testified on his own behalf during trial.

The nearly three-week trial is coming to a close Friday. John Edwards James is facing three counts of First-Degree murder for the deaths of 44-year-old Willona Ametrice White, 18-year-old Talmadge Holmes Jr., and 14-year-old Jaiden White.

All three were found shot and killed inside their house near Stella and Prudence Roads on July 1, 2021.

On June 15, 2022, almost a year after the triple murder, homicide detectives were able to find probable cause to charge Willona Whites estranged husband James.

James has been in the Pima County Jail since then on more than a $1 million bond.
