Autry indicted on Oxford murder charge
Bilethon Autry has been indicted in the shooting death of his brother, Charlie Ray Hodges, according to a report in the March 12 edition of The Oxford Eagle.
The indictment was handed down by the February grand jury in Lafayette County.
In September of last year, Autry held Oxford police officers at bay for three hours during a stand-off that left Hodges dead from a gunshot wound and his father, Billy Ray Autry, hiding in the attic of his Grand Oaks home in Oxford.
During the standoff, Autry fired shots at some of the police officers but missed, according to the report.
Autry was indicted on one charge of murder and one charge of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
He is being held at the Lafayette County Detention Center on no bond and awaiting trial.
