OXFORD — Three men and a woman have been charged in the death of a Lafayette County man.
Sheriff’s department investigator Scott Mills tells The Oxford Eagle the four were being held without bond Tuesday awaiting an initial court appearance.
Mills says Willie Anthony Canon, Justin Eugene Montez and Adam Corey Ferguson were charged with murder.
He says Kasie Lynn Jones was charged with accessory after the fact of capital murder. Mills wouldn’t comment on what role Jones might’ve played in the slaying.
Deputies discovered Derald “Pete” Connell, 69, last Thursday while responding to a disturbance call at his home. Mills says Connell later died at an Oxford hospital.
Mills says an autopsy showed Connell died from multiple blunt force trauma.
