On December 7, 1992, 16-year-old Jackson and two accomplices planned a carjacking and discussed killing someone.

At 1:30 p.m. that day, Jackson and his two companions waited for a car to stop near the area of 24th Street and Columbus Avenue in Tucson.

When the 40-year-old victim approached in her vehicle and stopped, Jackson asked her for a "light" for a cigarette. As she reached for the lighter, Jackson pointed a .45 caliber handgun at her head and forced her to move over.

Jackson and the two accomplices took control of her car, kept the gun pointed at her, and drove her to a desert area. There, Jackson shot the victim once in the chest. She died from this gunshot wound, which lacerated her heart and her left lung.
