His Life of Crime Began With a Murder Charge at Age 12

Jarrell was later charged with rape and aggravated assault

By True Crime WriterPublished 24 days ago 3 min read

In 2015, 12-year-old Jarrell Milton, his 17-year-old brother Jamar, and 15-year-old Shuntayvious Primes-Willis agreed to meet known drug dealers Jamymell Ray and Charles Fisher at Omaha’s Miller Park to purchase marijuana.

Fisher and Ray were met with gunfire when they arrived at the park. Ray, 31, died at the scene, while Fisher sustained serious injuries.  Police found casings from two different guns at the crime scene.

Arrests Made, Milton Flees to Another State

Police said the shootings were gang-related. Jamar Milton and Primes-Willis were arrested shortly after the incident. Jarrell Milton was arrested a week later in Minneapolis, 400 miles from Omaha. Milton had allegedly visited his father, who is serving life in a Minnesota prison on a murder charge.

Fisher helped identify the three teens. He identified Jamar Milton as the individual who pulled the trigger. All three juveniles were charged with murder as adults.

In 2017, Jamar Milton was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 58 to 82 years in prison.  Shuntayvious Primes-Wilkes was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 30 to 50 years in prison.

Jarrell Milton: Escape, Rape and Assault

And there’s Jarrell Milton, the 12-year-old who fled to Minneapolis to visit his dad after the shooting.  He was sentenced to live in a group home called Boys’ Town and serve probation until age 19.

Milton ran from the group home several times, violating his probation in October 2017, February 2018, and May 2019. He fled to his mother’s house in South Dakota each time.

In December 2019, Boys Town allowed Milton a furlough at his mother’s house in South Dakota. He was given an electronic monitoring anklet. In January 2020, the State decided to send 16-year-old Milton to the Kearney YRTC program until age 19, as the group home failed to rehabilitate him.

When Milton did not appear for a hearing to schedule the transfer, his mother, Iyesha Moss, notified the court that he was in jail in South Dakota on charges of rape.

Milton was charged as an adult in that case, although I cannot find an update regarding the outcome.

Fast forward to 2023, and Milton faced criminal charges yet again, this time for aggravated assault.

Jarrell Milton

According to police records, 20-year-old Milton and two of his brothers, Javion and Jaymiracle Milton, 23, physically attacked their neighbor, Luis Cardenas-Pena, at around 12:20 a.m. after he asked the three men to stop dumping trash in front of his house. Jaymiracle used a shovel to strike the man.

After assaulting the neighbor, the three brothers drove off, striking him with their vehicle.

Police were called to the scene. The car drove by the house while police were investigating, leading to a pursuit.  Jamar crashed the vehicle at North 30th and Highway 75, causing all three men serious injuries. The brothers were transported to a local hospital and treated for their injuries.

Milton Sentenced to Prison

After joining a gang before age 12, being present during a murder at age 12, accused of rape at age 16, and now of aggravated assault at 20, Milton’s crimes finally resulted in prison time. An Omaha judge sentenced Milton to 15 to 23 years in prison on convictions for aggravated assault, possession of methamphetamine, and use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony.

Milton is currently behind bars in a Nebraska prison. He is eligible for parole in 2033 and scheduled for release in 2037.
