Jefferson County Sheriff Peter Walker has identified the woman found dead in the cemetery of East Mount Olive Baptist Church Wednesday night.
About one dozen women from Jones County participated in a basic firearms training class just for them at the Laurel Police Training Academy Saturday. Police officers conducted classroom training and worked with the attendees to teach them how to properly load and fire their weapons.
The class was free and open to the public.
"We're taking our time to be proactive, giving these women training on how to protect themselves, until we make it to the scene," said Chief Tyrone Stewart of the Laurel Police Dept.
"This is an awesome class," said Janet Keveryn, one of the class participants. "We must be ready at any time if we have an intruder in our home," she said.
"They did a super job of letting us know exactly what to do and what not to do and how to keep ourselves safe," said Joan Young, another class participant.
Chief Stewart said he'd like to see these types of classes offered two or three times a year.
