Meanwhile, Jones' family on Friday gathered for his viewing ahead of his funeral, slated for Saturday. They said knowing Douglas was taken into custody is a huge relief.
"Me and Christopher were married on Aug. 15," said Jones' widow, Diana Jones.
Diana Jones and Christopher Jones Jr. were married three years ago Friday.
Police said Douglas on Aug. 6 shot Christopher Jones Jr. three times in the back before running from his apartment, located on Nellis Boulevard at Owens Avenue.
"All I know is she had the chance to go home, premeditate her every move, come back the next day and take my husband's life," Diana Jones said.
A witness told Metro detectives the trouble started the night of Aug. 5 during the game of dice. Christopher Jones Jr. thought Douglas was cheating and he beat, chocked and stole money from her, police said, citing a witness.
"You were that angry? Was it worth it? Did this solve anything?" Diana Jones said.
FOX5 on Friday spoke with Douglas' uncle, Donte Kelley, who provided a series of photos he said his niece sent him that show bruises, bite marks and a black eye inflicted by Christopher Jones Jr.
"You have physical bruises of damage he's caused. Now he's threatening to shoot you with a gun," Kelley said.
Kelley claims his niece didn't seek Christopher Jones Jr. out on Aug. 6; rather, he said, she ran into him by chance, and when he confronted her, she had no choice but to shoot him in self-defense.
"This was not a vengeful killing. This was not a premeditated killing," Kelley said.
Diana Jones said Douglas' capture will allow her to focus on the grieving process.
"I didn't realize how much of my peace she was taking by still being free. Last night I was able to actually sleep," she said.
Douglas is in custody in Utah, awaiting extradition to Las Vegas.
