A Storm of Swords
When Robb Stark, King of the Trident, comes to the Twins to apologize for breaking his marriage vows, Lord Walder Frey has Jinglebell present when he receives Robb. Catelyn Tully interprets this as an intentionally insulting breach of courtesy. Regardless, Robb compliments the bravery of Aegon's late father, Stevron. At the Red Wedding, Jinglebell prances about to the loud music. As the killing begins, Catelyn seizes him and threatens to kill him if Walder does not release Robb. Walder replies that he would readily trade a half-wit grandson for a son. As Robb is killed, Catelyn cuts Jinglebell's throat, killing him.
