Accused shooter makes bond, is released

By Daily Journal

TUPELO – A man accused of murder in the shooting death of Craig Mink made bond and was released from the Lee County jail on Friday.
The shooting, which took place Monday in the Pratts community on County Road 1599, reportedly stemmed from a dispute over where a camper was parked.
Freddy Kennedy, 64, of Baldwyn was charged and his bond was set at $1 million by Justice Court Judge Pat Carr.
According to Lee County Sheriff Jim Johnson, the judge put several conditions on Kennedy’s release, such as staying off the property, refraining from phone calls and more.
Johnson also said Kennedy’s health was deteriorating and was barely able to get around while in the jail.
Kennedy reportedly lived in a camper that was parked on Mink’s land behind his home.
Johnson said that when Mink went over to ask Kennedy to move the camper, an argument ensued and Mink was shot three times, at least once in the head at close range.
Johnson said deputies found Mink lying dead in the camper and the suspect standing nearby holding a handgun.
