HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg man is back behind bars after being indicted on several felony charges related to an alleged crime spree that claimed the life of a man in November 2016.

Virgil Luckett, 25, was indicted on a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of Frank Jenkins, 64.

Jenkins was killed in a double shooting on Prince George Road in Hattiesburg on Nov. 21, 2016.

Luckett and another suspect, Aaron Jones, were originally arrested two days after the homicide and charged with capital murder.

A Forrest County grand jury handed down the indictments for Luckett, Aaron Jones and two other suspects on Feb. 23. Jones was picked up by police March 6, and Luckett was taken into custody March 12, according to the Forrest County Jail docket.

According to court documents, Luckett, Aaron Jones, David Bernard Jones and Carlos Akeem Sibley were indicted on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated assault, two counts of attempted armed robbery and two counts of conspiracy to commit armed robbery in connection to the alleged crime spree.

All four suspects are being held at the Forrest County Jail without bond.
