Man faces murder charge
By SUE WATSON
A Waterford area resident was charged Wednesday of last week with murder in the shooting of LaKeith Demon “Ke Ke” Jones, 33, of Holly Springs the day before, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
He said Denorris Howell, 27, of 5514 Old Highway 7 South, was charged in Jones’ death after there had allegedly been an argument in Howell’s home over financing of a vehicle, keys and a burglary that had taken place earlier in the Laws Hill area.
The shooting took place in the carport of the two-story, brick home.
Howell was released on $100,000 bail Wednesday of last week, Dickerson said.
The Howell home was burglarized Tuesday night of last week while family members spent the night with relatives, according to the sheriff. Burglars kicked in a back door at the Howell house and took flat-screen televisions, computers and electronic games.
The case is still under investigation, including the burglary, the sheriff said.
In a separate incident that took place early Sunday morning around 12:30, a homeowner was injured in a house invasion in the Byhalia area, Dickerson said.
An unknown suspect entered the house at 506 East Cox Road through the back door, and wielding a machete, struck the resident about the head and upper body area. The victim was transported to Baptist Hospital Collierville and then on to The Med and was treated for head trauma, Dickerson said. The resident was home alone at the time of the attack.
Anyone who has information in any of these crimes or any other crime is asked to call Marshall County Crime Stoppers at 800-729-2169. Callers do not have to identify themselves when leaving tips with authorities. The information provided will be treated with strict confidence.
