Former Vol Janzen Jackson charged with murder

Former Vols safety Janzen Jackson has been in jail since September, and has been charged with the murder of his mother's long-time boyfriend.

According to the Los Angeles Register, Jackson pleaded not guilty last month to the murder of 43-year old Frank Herrera.

Prosecutors say Jackson strangled Herrera on September 11th and left his body to decompose in the back of a car for three days.

Jackson was arrested September 16th and is being held at the Twin Towers correctional facility in Los Angeles on $1 million bail.

Jackson was permanently dismissed from the Vols by Derek Dooley in 2011 after a variety of off the field issues.

His next court date is scheduled for July 15th.
