James “Jimbo” Carson. James Robert Carson (Upper Right) of Lancaster was charged Tuesday with one count of murder in connection with the killing of 50-year-old Joey Dean Jojola (Lower Right), according to Sarah Ardalani of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Carson was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday, but the court appearance was postponed to March 22 at the Antelope Valley Courthouse, Ardalani said.
The murder charged stems from an incident that was reported around 1 p.m. Friday, March 3, at a trailer park on the 1400 block of East Avenue I in Lancaster.
Responding deputies were confronted by a man who surrendered himself and said he had stabbed a man during an argument, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Information bureau.
