Prosecutors say their intent was to rob the occupants of the apartment of what they thought was a considerable amount of money located there. They say Jones wore a wig and women's clothing to help him elude police. Jones was eventually arrested in Chicago after a traffic stop.
Jones faces 150 years to life in state prison. Sentencing will be on July 29.
Jones' accomplices in the murders, Daniel Sanchez and Brian Roach, are serving prison terms after pleading guilty to murder and attempted murder.
