An elderly Mississippi Vietnam War veteran man is accused of killing his neighbor.

Corinth police charged 77-year-old Robert Allen with the murder of his neighbor, 74-year-old William Martin Lewis. Authorities say the veteran took Lewis’s life Thursday on South Tate Street, then fled the scene in a pickup truck.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol stopped him a short time later in Union County.

Allen received a $250,000 bond. A June 12 preliminary hearing has been set for the accused murderer.

Officers have yet to release a motive for the murder.

Allen served in the Vietnam War and is a recipient of four Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart medal.
