PRENTISS< Miss.--Three people are now in jail following the weekend murder of 43-year-old Jaqueline "Jackie" Berry. She was killed Dec. 15 at an apartment complex just outside Prentiss, in Jefferson Davis County.
Warren Strain, spokesperson for the Miss. Bureau of Investigation, told us agents were called by the Jeff Davis Sheriff's Dept. just after the body was found and quickly developed leads in the case. Those leads may have come from evidence collected by the crime scene unit.
Strain said 27-year-old James McLaurin turned himself in Saturday night. Sunday 29-year-old James Adrian Speights also turned himself in.
The last guy they found in Guntown, in Lee County. MBI Agents and U.S. Marshals arrested 24-year-old Eddie Harris this week.
"With the help of other law enforcement agencies and investigative tools and techniques, we were able to get these dangerous individuals off the streets," said Lt. Col. Larry Waggoner, director of the MBI.
