HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Lumberton man charged with murder in the 2014 shooting death of a Hattiesburg man has pleaded guilty.

Jarvis Holder, 29, pleaded guilty July 1 to second-degree murder in exchange for his cooperation and testimony against James Clark, of Hattiesburg, who is a co-defendant in the case in the murder of Matthew Campbell, 32.

Holder's sentence was deferred to a later date and will be set after Clark's trial, which is scheduled for July 21.

Another suspect, Timothy Jordan, 27 of Hattiesburg, was charged with murder, aggravated assault and armed robbery. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy in January.

Jordan's mother, Lorraine Jordan, 54, and his sister, Lavivian Wilson, 36 of Hattiesburg, were later arrested and charged in the crime, according to Hattiesburg Police Lt. Detective Branden McLemore.

According to 12th Circuit Court District Attorney Patricia Burchell, they were charged with accessory after the fact and pleaded guilty, but they will be sentenced after the resolution of Clark's trial.

Campbell was found shot once in the head inside an apartment at 106 Foxfire Drive. Patrick Snow was also wounded in the shooting, however he drove himself to Forrest General Hospital.
