Murder suspects arraigned
By SUE WATSON
The three suspects charged with capital murder in the killing of James Lockett of Shadow Lane in Holly Springs were arraigned in municipal court Thursday.
Lockett was killed around 10:15 p.m. September 7 behind his home with a handgun, according to chief Robert Pearson.
Eddie Lewis Isom, 29, of the Neely Avenue area, was the last of the three suspects taken into custody. He was found hiding in a closet at his mother's house when arrested Tuesday, Sept. 9, around 6 p.m., Pearson said.
He said police received quite a few tips from the public and ran down all leads to apprehend Eddie Isom at his house.
“There were places in the city where he was reported to have been seen and we certainly appreciate the assistance from citizens,” he said.
The other suspects, Cordett Isom, 20, also of Neely Avenue, and Kevin Richardson,18, also face capital murder charges, Pearson said. Cordett Isom was arrested after a chase the night of the shooting, while Richardson was arrested the next morning, September 8.
The three men are being held without bond with a preliminary hearing set for October 2, Pearson said.
Other activities reported by police for the week ending September 15 included the following citations: driving while license suspended (15); no driver’s license/expired license (4); no proof of insurance (25); careless driving (2); child restraint (2); driving under the influence (1); expired tag (3); resisting arrest (1); domestic violence (2); and petit larceny (1). Anyone having information regarding any crime is asked to call police at 662-252-2122 or Marshall County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-2169.
