ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones remembers his last conversation with his older brother.
In the early-morning hours of Jan. 9, 2005, Jones and his older brother, Darcell Kitchens, were standing down the street from their mother's home in tiny Richland, Ga. It was Kitchens' 19th birthday. A car stopped in the road, and a friend asked Kitchens if he wanted to go celebrate at a bar.
"Do you want me to stay with you or go?" Kitchens asked his younger brother.
"I told him it was his birthday and that he needed to go have fun," Jones said. "I told him I'd see him in the morning."
Jones would never see his brother again.
