HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A grand jury has handed down six indictments in the October 2008 robbery and murder of a Hattiesburg man.
Juveniles Darwin Marquel Wells, Terry Hye, and Tevin James Benjamin were indicted on charges of capital murder in the death of Hattiesburg resident Michael David Porter.
Instead of a capitol murder charge Alonzo Kelly will now face a lesser charge of accessory after the fact to murder. Melody Jones and Faith Gibson also face accessory charges.
Porter was asking for directions to a high-school football game when he was murdered in Moss Point. He was on his way to see his grandson play.
Trial dates will be set for later this year.
Sunday, March 26 marked the 30th anniversary that Southern Miss basketball won the 1987 NIT Tournament.
