Prosecutors say they've filed murder charges against Anthony Lamar Jones, as well as three additional charges of kidnapping, rape and lewd acts on a child in connection with the death of Genelle Renee Conway-Allen.

The seventh-grader was reported missing Jan. 31 by her guardian at the foster home where she lived. A passer-by found Genelle's body the next morning in a nearby park.

Solano County District Attorney Donald du Bain says the additional charges filed against the 32-year-old Jones are so-called special circumstances charges, which means he could be sentenced to either life in prison or to death, if convicted.

Jones did not enter a plea during Wednesday's hearing. He was ordered to return to court on Feb. 21.

He is being held without bail.
