13 days since Jimmie “Jay” Lee’s disappearance, an arrest has been made in the case of the missing Ole Miss student.

22-year-old Sheldon Timothy Herrington, Jr. of Grenada is in custody and has been charged with murder, announced by the Oxford Police Department.

Herrington’s attorney, Carlos Moore, has since proclaimed his client to be innocent.

“If the person is dead, I hope they find the real killer,” Moore, who was previously married to Herrington’s aunt for 20 years, told WREG. “Because they don’t have the person.”

Both Herrington and Lee are recent graduates of the university. Lee’s body has yet to be found.
