Police say Myron Sewell was denied bond Friday in an appearance before Municipal Judge Nicole Clinkscales.
Police Chief Selvain McQueen says Sewell is charged in the shooting death of 41-year-old Willie Vaughn in September of 2011. Vaughn was shot in the yard of his father's house and died on the way to a hospital.
McQueen says Sewell was in the Lowndes County jail when charged in the slaying. Sewell was being held on sexual battery, robbery and trespassing charges.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 6.
