Arrest Made in Laurel Murder Case

A suspect in a fatal Laurel shooting last year is in jail in Jones County following his arrest in Tennessee last week.  26-year-old Joseph Lee Davis of Laurel is charged with accessory to the murder of Donald Wayne Gavin, who died after being shot in the chest at the Lone Oak Apartments last May.  Davis was taken into custody in Nashville after a traffic stop and made his first appearance in court in Ellisville Thursday.  A second suspect in the murder is out of jail on bond, but a third, 30-year-old Tony Maurice Keeton, remains at-large.  Police think he was the gunman in the shooting.
