Jones County man charged with murder

Posted: Updated:
JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County man is dead, and his alleged killer is behind bars on murder charges. 

Randy Williams, 59, was arrested for allegedly beating Daniel Barlow, 58, to death.

Investigators said Williams slapped Barlow because he did not have rent money. Authorities said after Williams slapped Barlow he pinned him to the ground and beat him with his fist over a half-dozen times, and then kicked him in the nose.

While Williams was on his way into the courtroom on Monday he appeared to be unhappy with WDAM-TV who was filming the event. Williams rushed photographer Eddie Robertson and pushed him into a glass door using his head.
