Miss. News Briefs: Husband Found Burned and Shot, Cub Scouts Get Lifetime Memory

COVINGTON COUNTY, Miss.–It’s hard to imagine just how mad you’d have to be at your spouse to not only shoot them dead, but to set their body on fire. Here are some news briefs that might be the start of a shocking week:

A husband found shot and burned, gas cans right beside him, and now the wife charged with the killing. Found face down at their house in Covington County Saturday morning was Chester Griffin. WDAM reports the sheriff’s department questioned several people, but it was the wife, Jennifer Griffin, who was arrested. Even though he was shot, there’s an autopsy going on to find out whether he died from being burned or not.

Another reminder to be extra careful on your bike. It was a motorcycle wreck on Hwy. 90 just before midnight Saturday in Biloxi and Jason Owens is dead. The coroner there says he swerved, hit the curb, and then hit a tree. He was wearing his helmet, wasn’t drinking, doing everything right. Just an accident.

A wreck on the Attala/Leake county line trapped a 27-year-old woman Sunday just after church. They had to pull out the Jaws of Life to get her out.

Just one day away, the GOP Senate run-off. Brett Favre’s TV ad for Cochran and several new endorsements might not enough to keep Cochran in. A new poll from Chisum Strategies has McDaniel with an eight point lead. Polls open 7 a.m. Tuesday.

If you think that the federal government should not be able to tell your business you have to provide coverage for abortion, you should know the Hobby Lobby case is getting close. The chain has four stores in Mississippi and it’s a family business. The Supreme Court says it should be before the end of June when you find out if they’ll protect Hobby Lobby’s right to refuse to provide the coverage on religious grounds.

You’re paying $3.46 in Mississippi, on average today. She says if crude oil prices don’t make a huge jump, gas might only go up another three or four cents.


If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to become a boy scout, some cub scouts got that lifetime memory in Gautier this weekend…
