Murder suspect nabbed in Texas
Jeremy McGauyhey, 33, was arrested this week in Houston, Texas, on a warrant, according to Holly Springs Police Chief Robert Pearson.
He is a suspect in the April 25 murder of Melvin Louis Greer, 39, at the Bearcat Sports Bar, according to Pearson. Greer died of multiple gunshot wounds, according to coroner James Richard Anderson.
Pearson said McGauyhey was picked up by U.S. Marshals and a request for extradition of the suspect back to Marshall County will be issued to Texas authorities.
The investigation into the shooting death of Anthony Darrell Phillips on the court square in Holly Springs on April 14 is ongoing, Pearson said.
The Marshall County Board of Supervisors approved a pauper’s burial for Phillips at the Monday board meeting. A small grave marker bearing his name and dates will be provided by the county, as well. Several stones will be engraved with the names and dates of more recently-turned graves at the county cemetery in order to provide both a record and a proper burial for those who died without means to pay for a funeral.
