Secret cell for accused in child's murder

A Magee man has been charged with capital murder in the death of a 3-year-old child.

Jermaine MacDonald, 18, was denied bond in a preliminary hearing Tuesday before Simpson County Justice Court Judge Eugene Knight.

Authorities said MacDonald was charged in the death of Corey Thornton. They did not release details about the case.

MacDonald was held Wednesday at an "undisclosed location" for security reasons, Investigator Randy Crawford said.
